With the recent rapid advancement of portable electronics and electric vehicles, research on high-efficiency energy-storage materials with low environmental impact is necessary for the sustainable development of energy-storage technologies. The high energy density, excellent cycle life, low cost, and low maintenance of rechargeable batteries (lithium/sodium-ion batteries) make them a promising solution. However, the energy and power densities of current lithium/sodium-ion batteries do not meet the high energy demands of electric vehicles. Thus, the development of high-voltage cathodes and low-potential/high-capacity anodes has become an important field of research. Further increases in energy and power density could be possible with electrode materials and electrolytes. This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in rechargeable batteries (limited to lithium/sodium-ion batteries) and will cover the challenges and solutions across major aspects of battery research, with a focus on the following topics:
- High-performance cathodes and anodes for rechargeable batteries
- High-voltage cathodes for Li/Na-ion batteries (special focus)
- Silicon and Li metal anodes for Li-ion batteries (special focus)
- Carbon-based anodes for Na-ion batteries
- The development of low-cost electrode materials
- Co-free electrode materials
- Synchrotron techniques for rechargeable batteries
- Advanced electrolytes
- Electrolyte additives
- All-solid-state batteries
- Composite solid electrolytes
- Novel binders for rechargeable batteries
We welcome contributions from researchers and experts working in the field of rechargeable lithium/sodium-ion batteries, and encourage submissions on advanced cathodes/anodes for lithium/sodium-ion batteries addressing the limitation of current cathodes/anodes; the development of all-solid-state batteries; novel liquid/solid electrolyte designs; and breakthroughs in battery research.
