Manganese-containing salen-type complexes of (R,R)-(−)-N,N′-Bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)-1,2-cyclohexanediaminomanganese(III) chloride (MnSl) were examined as a novel soluble catalyst in nonaqueous electrolyte solutions for lithium air secondary batteries (LABs). The LAB cells with MnSl exhibited a larger first discharge capacity and better cycle performance (893 mAh g−1, 738 mAh g−1 up to 10 cycles) than those without MnSl. Attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) conducted during the discharge/charge cycle showed deposition and decomposition of the discharge product, Li2O2, on the surface of the air electrode. Cyclic voltammetry results suggested that MnSl promotes the oxygen reduction reaction and oxygen evolution reaction because of its high reactivity with O2.
