Lithium ion batteries have gained increasing attention in the last two decades. Perfoming electrolyte additive into lithium ion battery could enhance the baterry performance. However several studies on electrolyte additive only show the experimental data. The behavior of battery kinetic inside the battery and the ionic diffusion during operation was not analyzed. This study will investigate the effect of electrolyte additive on ionic diffusion of battery based on electrochemical model. The role of the electrolyte is to provide an ionic conduction path between the anode and the cathode. This study elucidates the improvement of the cycleability by performing the electrolyte containing 0.1 wt % of Flouro-o-phenylenedimaleimide (F-MI) based additive compared to the electrolyte with 0.1 wt % N,N’-o-phenylenedimaleimide (O-MI) and without an additive shown by effective constant phase elements (CPE) coefficient of impedance spectra on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The result elucidates that many amount of lithium ion remains on SEI layer of the mesocarbon microbeads (MCMB) half cell with F-MI additive, indicating that ion move easily because of high diffusion. The simulation result elucidated the agreement with the experimental data, the diffusion of the MCMB half-cell with F-MI additive is highest compared to MCMB half-cell with O-MI and without additive, that is emphasized with result on the EIS test.
