Adding organic carbonates (e.g., vinylene carbonate, VC) into ionic liquid (IL)-based electrolytes generally improves the electrochemical performance of graphite electrode (Cgr)-based Li-ion batteries. The impact of VC on the wettability at open-circuit voltage and the interface chemical structure change between pristine Cgr and the ionic liquid-based electrolyte have been investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The XPS results show a change in the surface dipole and a better impregnation of the IL-based electrolyte when the VC is added to the electrolytic media. The Cgr dipole change and the better impregnation of IL-based electrolyte induce a change in the electrical series resistance and double-layer capacitance as deduced by EIS measurements.
