After over 20 years of their commercialization, lithium-ion batteries have experienced a rapid market growth despite a sluggish worldwide economy. With emerging new markets, lithium-ion batteries need to provide enhanced performance in terms of energy density, power density, calendar life, and safety. This requires the development of new electrode and electrolyte materials capable of storing more lithium at faster rates with higher chemical, thermal, and mechanical stability.

This book covers the most recent advances in the science and technology of nanostructured materials for lithium-ion applications. Some of the most renowned scientists and technologists in the field present their state-of-the-art research on nanostructured anode and cathode materials, some of which are already in use in commercial batteries. The book will be a useful reference in the fast-growing field of nanostructured materials for energy storage and conversion, which is expected to shape the next-generation lithium-ion batteries driven by a highly demanding and fast-expanding market. 

Key Features:

  • Is the first of its kind and is fully dedicated to the nanoscience and nanotechnology of lithium-ion batteries
  • Presents the most-promising nanostructured materials options toward the formation of Li-ion batteries that would surpass more conventional batteries in energy density
  • Comprises of chapters contributed by most-renowned scientists and technologists, who have presented their state-of-the-art research on nanostructured anode and cathode materials, some of which are already being used in commercial batteries while others are under intensive R&D activity
