Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays, clean and sustainable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, reduce the use of fossil energy sources. It is important to develop electrochemical energy storage devices (including batteries, electrochemical capacitors, and so on), as they play a critical role in harnessing these clean and sustainable energy sources. The performance of these electrochemical energy storage devices typically depends on the physical and chemical properties of the materials used in electrodes, separators, and electrolytes. Therefore, various materials have been developed to construct electrochemical energy storage devices with a good performance. Among these materials, carbon-based nanomaterials have been considered as promising components for various electrochemical energy storage devices. This is because carbon materials (which are highly conductive, have a large specific surface area, and so on) are suited for pairing with other functional nanomaterials to achieve a synergistic effect (1 + 1 is greater than 2).

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is aimed at presenting the current state-of-the-art carbon-based nanomaterials in electrochemical energy storage devices. In this Special Issue, we invite contributions from leading groups in the field, with the aim of presenting a balanced view of this discipline.

Solid-state lithium metal batteries (LMBs) have been extensively investigated owing to their safer and higher energy density. In this work, we prepared a novel elastic solid-state polymer electrolyte based on an in situ-formed elastomer polymer matrix with ion-conductive plasticizer crystal embedded with Li6.5La3Zr1.5Ta0.5O12 (LLZTO) nanoparticles, denoted as LZT/SN-SPE. The unique structure of LZT/SN-SPE shows excellent elasticity and flexibility, good electrochemical oxidation tolerance, high ionic conductivity, and high Li+ transference number. The role of LLZTO filler in suppressing the side reactions between succinonitrile (SN) and the lithium metal anode and propelling the Li+ diffusion kinetics can be affirmed. The Li symmetric cells with LZT/SN-SPE cycled stably over 1100 h under a current density of 5 mA cm−2, and Li||LiFePO4 cells realized an excellent rate (92.40 mAh g−1 at 5 C) and long-term cycling performance (98.6% retention after 420 cycles at 1 C). Hence, it can provide a promising strategy for achieving high energy density solid-state LMBs. Full article
