Electron-withdrawing substituents are introduced onto the phenothiazine core to raise its oxidation potential for use as a redox shuttle in high-voltage lithium-ion batteries. A perfluorinated derivative oxidizes at 4.3 V vs. Li+/0, and functions for ca. 500 h of 100% overcharge in LiNi0.8Co0.15Al0.05O2/graphite coin cells at a charging rate of C/10.
