The nature of protective surface layers formed on lithium in propylene carbonate solutions of LiC10 4 and LiAsF 6 at open circuit has been investigated by electrochemical pulse measurements. The results are consistent with the fast formation of a compact thin layer resulting from the reaction with residual water. This layer acts as a solid ionic conductor. Slow corrosion or decomposition processes produce a thicker porous overlayer.
