Organic small molecules and polymers as an electrode materials for rechargeable lithium ion batteries

Abstract

Organic electrode materials are very attractive for electrochemical energy storage devices because they have a high theoretical capacity, structural diversity, flexibility, lightweight, low cost, and environmental benignity. Organic electrode materials are the promising alternative to the conventional inorganic material. Varies organic materials such as conducting polymers, organodisulfides, nitroxy radical polymers and conjugated carbonyl compounds have been studied as an electrode materials for lithium batteries. Among them, small organic carbonyl compounds, and a polymer containing carbonyl has been widely studied as an electrode materials because of their high theoretical capacity, fast redox kinetics, and structural diversity while these material have intrinsic drawbacks such as solubility in the electrolyte media and low conductivity. Herein, we review the major methods to solve these problems by increasing the polarity. The polarity of small molecules is increased by forming the salt. And the conductivity can be enhanced by chemically doping strategy or forming the composite with a conductive additive. This review provides guidance to design the new type of organic materials for the next generation rechargeable batteries.
