Capacity fading in lithium ion battery

 Mechanism for lithium ion battery failure

Formation of solid electrolyte interphase layer at graphite anode

Formation of the solid electrolyte interface at the graphite electrode results in capacity loss in a lithium ion battery. The makeup of the solid electrolyte interface has been studied in [Vallabha Rao Rikka et al., In situ/exsitu Investigations on the Formation of the MosaicSolid-Electrolyte Interface Layer on Graphite Anode for Lithium-Ion Batteries The Journal of Physical Chemistry Part C 122, 50, 28717-28726 (2018)].
