Nanomaterials for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Fundamentals and Applications

by Rachid Yazami

“This book provides a very useful introduction to the forthcoming advanced nanomaterials for lithium-ion anodes and cathodes. Benefits and disadvantages of a wide range of materials types are presented both in the context of fundamental materials properties and challenges of incorporating nanomaterials into practical electrodes and cells. Common themes within the chapters are the benefits of nanosizing materials in terms of shorter diffusion lengths, improved conductivity and better rate capability, but disadvantages such as low density and increased surface area leading to greater irreversible capacity and unstable SEI are also highlighted. Strategies to control volume expansion and limit material degradation with cycles via the preparation of composite materials and nanostructures, coatings or doping also feature across a wide number of the examples used.”
