High performance of electrochemical lithium storage batteries: ZnO-based nanomaterials for lithium-ion and lithium–sulfur batteries
As one of the most promising electrode materials, zinc oxide-based nanomaterials have attracted great attention in recent decades for remarkable features such as relatively low cost, relatively high reversible capacity and good physical and chemical stability. In this article, we aim to present a general review of synthetic methods of zinc oxide-based nanomaterials and related morphologies. In addition, recent advances in lithium storage batteries are summarized and discussed (lithium-ion and lithium–sulfur batteries). Tentative conclusions and assessments aim to promote the next generation of electrochemical lithium storage devices.
