Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As automobiles, consumer commodities, and other products are digitalized and electrified, the demand for energy storage devices with higher energy and power densities is becoming increasingly urgent; in recent years, electrochemical energy storage technologies have drawn more and more attention both in academia and industry. Inorganic materials comprise the majority of these devices, and they exert tremendous impacts on the devices’ performance. Herein, this Special Issue of Inorganics will focus on Novel Research on Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials. We are pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts and publish your research in this Special Issue.

This Special Issue aims to publish the latest research on inorganic materials for electrochemical energy storage applications, including (but not limited to) the synthesis, characterization, and application of electrode active materials, conductive agents, binders, current collectors, electrolyte salts/solvents/additives, separators, casing materials, etc., in various types of electrochemical energy storage devices, including (but not limited to) lithium/sodium (-ion) batteries, lead–acid batteries, redox flow batteries, supercapacitor–battery hybrids, etc.

In this Special Issue, original research articles, communications, and reviews are welcome. The research topics may include (but not limited to) the following: electrode active materials, conductive agents, binders, electrolyte salts/solvents/additives, and separators. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their detailed experimental and theoretical results. Therefore, there is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Cobalt-free manganese-based lithium-rich layered oxides (LLOs) have garnered research attention as prospective lithium-ion cathode materials owing to their large specific capacity and low price. However, their large-scale application is hindered by their low Coulombic efficiency, poor cycling performance, voltage attenuation, and structural phase transition. To address these issues, the LLO structure is modified via Ti doping at the manganese site herein. Ti-doped Li1.2Mn0.6−xTixNi0.2O2 (x = 0, 0.03, 0.05, 0.10, and 0.15) is prepared using the high-temperature solid-state method. The Ti-doped Li1.2Mn0.6Ni0.2O2 is calculated via first principles. The results show that Ti4+ doping improves the cycle stability and rate performance of Li1.2Mn0.6Ni0.2O2. Electrochemical test results show that the sample exhibits enhanced electrochemical performance when the Ti doping amount is 0.05. The discharge specific capacity at 0.1C is 210.4 mAh·g−1, which reaches 191.1 mAh·g−1 after 100 cycles, with a capacity retention rate of 90.7%. This study proves the feasibility of using cheap cobalt-free LLOs as cathode materials for LIBs and provides a novel system for exploiting low-cost and high-performance cathode materials.
