Article by Distinguished Professor Liu and his team published in EnergyChem-封面圖

In the face of energy challenges, the world relies on batteries as power storage, especially lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), which are both cost-effective and portable. However, despite the significant progress made in LIB technology, there is still a pressing demand for higher energy and power densities and improved safety features to make LIBs more practical for future transportation systems and large-scale grid power storage. One way to enhance the energy density of a LIB is by incorporating a Li metal anode (LMA), which is considered the ideal choice due to its exceptional properties such as high specific capacity (3861 mA h g–1) and low anode potential (approximately –3.04 V vs SHE). The use of LMA is hindered by significant issues such as the growth of Li dendrites, low Coulombic efficiency, poor cycle life, and safety concerns when organic liquid electrolytes are employed... more
