AbstractThe book starts with a chapter that covers the basic concepts of Li-ion battery technology and the subject of nanotechnology and also the fundamental aspects of ionic materials at the nanoscale and highlights the key differences between them and conventional-scale materials. Chapter 2 discusses the role of nanoarchitectured electrode materials in the performance of Li-ion batteries, while Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 demonstrate in detail the role of anode materials that are based on metals, metalloids, or metal oxides and capable of alloying with lithium as alternatives to graphitic conventional anodes when made as nanoparticles or nanostructures thus enhancing the rate capability of the batteries. In some cases, as shown in Chapters 5 and 6, it was demonstrated that certain metal oxides can become active towards lithium only as a result of the “nano” effect. Chapters 7 and 8 describe the benefits of nano-sized cathode materials for example in overcoming some limitations of Liions intercalation in lithium metal oxide and phosphate materials and improving their power performance. Chapter 9 is concerned with the work performed on the effect of incorporating nanoparticles on the properties of electrolytes and to a lesser extent the electrode-electrolyte interface. Finally, Chapter 10 gives an outline of the work on interdigitated electrodes and 3D micro-batteries.
