NMR and MRI of Electrochemical Energy Storage Materials and Devices Editors: Yong Yang, Riqiang Fu, Hua Huo


About this book

Energy storage material is a hot topic in material science and chemistry. During the past decade, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has emerged as a powerful tool to aid understanding of the working and failing mechanisms of energy storage materials and devices. The aim of this book is to introduce the use of NMR methods for investigating electrochemical storage materials and devices.

Presenting a comprehensive overview of NMR spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on energy storage materials, the book will include the theory of paramagnetic interactions and relevant calculation methods, a number of specific NMR approaches developed in the past decade for battery materials (e.g. in situ, ex situ NMR, MRI, DNP, 2D NMR, NMR dynamics) and case studies on a variety of related materials. Helping both NMR spectroscopists entering the field of batteries and battery specialists seeking diagnostic methods for material and device degradation, it is written by leading authorities from international research groups in this field.

Author information

Yong Yang obtained his PhD in Physical Chemistry from Xiamen University in 1992. Except for a one-year (1997–1998) academic visit at Oxford University, he has been working in the State Key Laboratory for Physical Chemistry of Solid Surface at Xiamen University since 1992. Now, he is a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Director of Research at the Institute of Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Engineering in Xiamen. His main research interests are new electrode and electrolyte materials for lithium- and sodium-ion batteries, in-situ spectroscopic techniques, interfacial reaction mechanism study in electrochemical energy storage and conversion system. He has published over 170 papers in many international journals and is one of the Associate Editors for the Journal of Power Sources. He has obtained several national and international research awards, eg 2014 Technology Award by International Battery Association.
Riqiang Fu obtained his PhD in 1992 from Wuhan Institute of Physics with the honor of the Academic President Award of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. After a post-doctoral fellowship at University of Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1994, he has been working at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) at Florida State University. Currently, he is a Research Faculty III at NHMFL. He specializes in solid-state NMR methodology development and NMR applications in materials science (such as lithium-ion battery materials) and biological systems (such as membrane active proteins). He has published over 128 peer-reviewed papers in highly ranked journals.
Hua Huo obtained her PhD in Chemistry in 2009 from State University of New York at Stony Brook. After an ALiSTORE-ERI post-doctoral fellowship at ICMCB-CNRS and University of Cambridge, in 2013, she joined Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). Currently, she is an Associate Professor at HIT. Her research focuses on solid-state NMR applications in energy related materials (such as zeolitic materials, cathodes and anodes for lithium- and sodium-ion batteries, solid electrolytes). She has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers in prestigious journals such as Journal of the American Chemical Society, Chemistry of Materials, Advanced Energy Materials and Journal of Material Chemistry A.
