Metal Electrodes for Battery Technologies
The energy demands of contemporary society mandate the urgent development and commercialisation of a ‘post-Li-ion battery’. Metal anodes are an important piece of this puzzle. This research and reference text discusses the role of metal electrodes in batteries in detail. Introducing the fundamental theoretical properties of metal anodes, the book surveys the history and prospects of the field, covering a wide range of metals, including Li, Na, K, Mg, Al, Zn, Ge, Sn, Sb and Bi. The first book of its kind to offer a comprehensive survey of the field, ‘Metal Electrodes and Battery Technologies’ facilitates engagement with the latest research and future challenges concerning the role of metals in the development of high-capacity batteries. The book is an essential reference for researchers working on metal electrodes for various batteries, as well as useful supplementary reading for students in the fields of electrochemistry and energy storage.
