Conductivity measurements carried out on samples with varying compositions of lithium, biphenyl (β), and THF reveal the highest conductivity of 12.0 mS/cm is achieved with the solution composition Li1.0β(THF)8.2 and a metallic behavior. Characteristic fingerprint peaks attributed to the solvated electron solution appear in the FTIR spectra. Also, from the FTIR spectra, we propose a reaction mechanism of lithium reaction with biphenyl in THF in that Li1β(THF)n1 (1 Li atom pairing with 1 biphenyl molecule) is formed first followed by Li2β(THF)n1 (2 Li atoms pairing with 1 biphenyl molecule). A better understanding of the physical properties of the Li-SES is a prerequisite in view of their optimal applications as liquid anodes in lithium batteries.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/106664
