Lithium-Ion Batteries: Recent Advances and New Horizons


The lithium-ion battery has evolved as the major power source ever since its discovery in 1991 by Sony and represents one of the major successes of materials electrochemistry. Lithium-ion batteries are becoming more and more popular in view of the multifarious applications arising from their high voltage and high power leading to light weight and smaller size cells/batteries. In view of the growing day to day demand for lithium-ion batteries, intensive research is being pursued globally to develop new high-performing cost-effective electrode and electrolyte materials without compromising environmental issues.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the strategies for the development of electrode and electrolyte materials and the evaluation of their performance. We are particularly interested in articles describing the new modalities towards high-performing lithium-ion battery materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent advances in cathode materials
  • Advances in anode materials
  • Latest polymer electrolyte materials
  • Ionic liquids
  • Separators
  • Electronic and battery management
  • Recycling
  • New electrolytes for all solid state batteries

Articles published in this special issue will not be subject to the journal's Article Processing Charges.
