Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The large-scale application of electric drive equipment, mainly electric vehicles, and renewable energy, including wind, solar, ocean, and so on, is in urgent need of developing new and efficient energy storage materials and devices with high safety, high energy density, and a long cyclic life. Therefore, researchers have carried out numerous studies on electrochemical energy storage materials and devices.

This Special Issue aims to collect the latest research advances and future prospects in the field of electrochemical energy storage, including, but not limited to, the following: high-performance electrode materials, advanced electrode structure, electrolyte composition, energy storage mechanism, and novel energy storage devices.

We welcome the submission of research and review papers in the field of rechargeable batteries (including lithium/sodium/potassium/zinc ion batteries, aqueous batteries, lithium sulfur batteries, lithium metal batteries, hybrid capacitor, etc.) to this Special Issue, titled "Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials and Devices: Recent Advances and Future Prospects".

We hope that this Special Issue provides a good platform of communication for researchers, engineers, and policymakers to create a comprehensive understanding of the latest advances in electrochemical energy storage materials and devices.

Constructing three-dimensional (3D) current collectors is an effective strategy to solve the hindrance of the development of lithium metal anodes (LMAs). However, the excessive mass of the metallic scaffold structure leads to a decrease in energy density. Herein, lithiophilic graphene aerogels comprising reduced graphene oxide aerogels and silver nanowires (rGO-AgNW) are synthesized through chemical reduction and freeze-drying techniques. The rGO aerogels with large specific surface areas effectively mitigate local current density and delay the formation of lithium dendrites, and the lithiophilic silver nanowires can provide sites for the uniform deposition of lithium. The rGO-AgNW/Li symmetric cell presents a stable cycle of about 2000 h at 1 mA cm−2. When coupled with the LiFePO4 cathode, the assembled full cells exhibit outstanding cycle stability and rate performance. Lightweight rGO-AgNW aerogels, as the host for lithium metal, can significantly improve the energy density of lithium metal anodes. Full article
