Advanced batteries, including lithium-ion batteries, have been attracting growing attention as the most promising commercialized energy storage devices. Reliable safety, high energy density and long service life are the key properties for guaranteeing that advanced batteries penetrate the market. Limited by the inevitable overheating and undesirable electrochemical performance of cathodes and anodes, the need for advanced electrode materials remains urgent. Moreover, other energy storage systems beyond lithium batteries, including sodium, zinc and magnesium batteries, provide new opportunities.
In this Special Issue, we look forward to contributing to solving the above problems in the following three aspects: The understanding of chemical and physical mechanisms of battery degradation is the first step to develop more reliable and durable systems, which will allow us to improve the performance of commercial electrodes or develop new materials based on advanced characterization and theoretical models. Secondly, battery safety is always a prerequisite for the development of lithium-ion battery technology. We must pay attention to the safety of batteries and prevent overheating during charging. Finally, the transition from idealized experiments in the laboratory to industrial commercial production is emphasized.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Improvement of commercialized electrode materials;
- Development of next-generation electrode materials;
- Enhancement of battery safety;
- Advanced characterization methods;
- Technologies to increase the initial Coulombic efficiency;
- Fast validation strategies to determine the performance of materials;
- The gaps between laboratorial and practical batteries.
