Abundant and Non-toxic Materials for Batteries
This special topic is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the discovery of LiFePO4 in honor of Prof. John B. Goodenough, and presents the most recent progress on abundant and non-toxic materials for batteries.
With the widespread use of energy storage devices in electric vehicles, portable devices, and home battery storage, there is an urgent call for abundant and non-toxic materials. Therefore, new types of rechargeable batteries are regarded as the next generation energy storage systems. Researchers have made great efforts on the development of low-cost and ecofriendly energy storage systems, and interdisciplinary fusion is the trend in the field, including materials science, energy storage, biology, chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, information science, etc.
