Herein we demonstrate that the addition of tert-butyl cobalt phthalocyanine (tb-CoPc) into the electrolyte improved the charging performance in a coin-type Li-air battery. The improvement is attributed to the ability of the added tb-CoPc to serve as a diffusive catalyst for the aprotic oxygen evolution reaction.
