Title: LITHIUM ANODES FOR ELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS
Abstract:
Provided are lithium anodes for use in electrochemical cells, where the anode active layer has a first layer comprising lithium metal and a second layer of a temporary protective material, wherein the temporary protective material is a metal capable of forming an alloy with lithium metal or is capable of diffusing into lithium metal. The present invention also pertains to methods of forming such anodes, electrochemical cells comprising such anodes, and methods of making such cells.
