Aprotic lithium oxygen batteries have gained enormous attention due to their high specific energy. However, while not compromising on rechargeability, the practical realization of the theoretically possible high specific energies has been elusive. Here, we use a singlet oxygen quencher, DABCO, and study the changes in recharge overpotential and parasitic reactions using a combination of galvanostatic charge-discharge measurements and gas analysis via differential electrochemical mass spectrometry. We find that the presence of quencher lowers the recharge overpotential. Interestingly, the higher concentration of quencher mediates electrolyte degradation and reduces oxygen evolution efficiency. Our results imply that a better understanding of the mechanisms and identifying stable additives that minimize parasitic chemistry during cell operation will be critical for rechargeable metal-oxygen batteries
