Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Oxides have gained significant attention in various fields due to their exceptional features, such as high stability, chemical inertness, and wide range of electronic properties. Oxides have a broad range of potential applications in various fields, including catalysis, sensors, energy storage, optoelectronics, ceramics, and electronics. The properties of oxides make them promising candidates for various applications, and ongoing research continues to explore new applications for these materials.

The objective of the articles in this Special Issue is to equip readers with knowledge and skills related to oxide materials design, manufacturing, and processing. The articles aim to explore the properties and functional characteristics of oxide materials. The focus is on the impact of various parameters on the technological, physical, chemical, and functional properties of advanced oxide materials, including metal oxides, non-metal oxides, and ceramics. This Special Issue also provides a platform for presenting advanced applications of oxide materials.

Molybdenum trioxide is an abundant natural, low-cost, and environmentally friendly material that has gained considerable attention from many researchers in a variety of high-impact applications. It is an attractive inorganic oxide that has been widely studied because of its layered structure, which results in intercalation ability through tetrahedral/octahedral holes and extension channels and leads to superior charge transfer. Shape-related properties such as high specific capacities, the presence of exposed active sites on the oxygen-rich structure, and its natural tendency to oxygen vacancy that leads to a high ionic conductivity are also attractive to technological applications. Due to its chemistry with multiple valence states, high thermal and chemical stability, high reduction potential, and electrochemical activity, many studies have focused on the development of molybdenum oxide-based systems in the last few years. Thus, this article aims to briefly review the latest advances in technological applications of MoO3 and MoO3-based materials in gas sensors, lithium-ion batteries, and water pollution treatment using adsorption and photocatalysis techniques, presenting the most relevant and new information on heterostructures, metal doping, and non-stoichiometric MoO3−x.

All-solid-state lithium-ion batteries (ASSLIBs), with their exceptional attributes, have captured the attention of researchers. They offer a viable solution to the inherent flaws of traditional lithium-ion batteries. The crux of an ASSLB lies in its solid-state electrolyte (SSE) which shows higher stability and safety compared to liquid electrolyte. Additionally, it holds the promise of being compatible with Li metal anode, thereby realizing higher capacity. Inorganic SSEs have undergone tremendous developments in the last few decades; however, their practical applications still face difficulties such as the electrode–electrolyte interface, air stability, and so on. The structural composition of inorganic electrolytes is inherently linked to the advantages and difficulties they present. This article provides a comprehensive explanation of the development, structure, and Li-ion transport mechanism of representative inorganic SSEs. Moreover, corresponding difficulties such as interface issues and air stability as well as possible solutions are also discussed. Full article
