An electric double layer is formed prior to the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) on reactive metal electrodes. In their Research Article on page 4215, Jia‐Qi Huang and co‐workers identify the critical role of the electric double layer chemistry and structure in governing the competitive reactions during SEI formation. The results provide guidance for targeted interface design to generate a stable working lithium anode interface.
