Abstract:Due tolimited global energy supplies, environmental pollution, and the increasing consumption of energy,greenand efficient energy storage devices are in high demandin modern society.The rechargeable lithium-sulfur and lithium-air batteries currently enjoy great scientific interest because theoretically, they can store significantly more energies, which possible exceed that of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) have recently been considered as an alternative to LIBs due to the low-cost and natural abundance of sodium. Our recently work on Li-S batteries, Li-O2batteriesandSIBswill be presented in this lecture.
Sulfur has the highest theoretical specific capacity of 1675 mAh g−1among all solid cathode materials,as well as being low-cost and nontoxic.Its low active material utilization, however, and poor cycle life are obstructing the application of Li-S batteries. Carbon materials and comducting polymers have been studied as the conductive additives to improve the performance.
A Li-O2battery could reach an energy density 3-4 times higher than state-of-the-art LIBs at the cell level. Research on the Li-O2battery, however, is currently still in the early stages of understanding the basic scientific principles and mechanisms, and there are significant technical challenges confronting the development of advanced materials for Li-O2batteries. Metal oxides, transition metal-doped perovskite oxide, Ru porous carbon composites and Pd-based composites have been invested as air-cathode materials.
A major challenge in advancing sodium-ion batteries is tofind appropriate Na storage electrode materials.One of the main obstacles to the commercialization of NIBs is the limited choice of anode materials that can provide good stability and high-rate performance. Carbon materials, phosphorus-based and Sn-based composites have been invested in our group.
