Inorganic nanomaterials for batteries

Author affiliations


The availability of inorganic materials at the nano-dimension opens up opportunities for advanced battery designs and architectures. This Perspective focuses on the opportunities for nanomaterials in all elements of batteries, describing where they might find application and also discussing their limitations. We concentrate on alloys and oxides for the anode, on the olivine phosphate for the cathode and the formation of the interphases between them and its dependence on the electrolyte in lithium batteries.
