Development of Earth-Abundant and High-Performance Electrode Materials for Advanced Electrochemical Batteries

About this Research Topic

The ever-increasing energy and environmental crises require the development of clean and sustainable energy technologies. Advanced electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices such as batteries play an important role in overcoming the fluctuating nature of solar and wind energy sources, whose performance is largely associated with the progress of the key electrode materials. Therefore, to promote the large-scale applications of these promising systems, developing highly efficient and durable electrode materials based on low cost and earth-abundant elements has been taken into the center stage in current research areas from chemistry, physics, and materials science fields.

This Research Topic focuses on the recent development and achievements in the design, synthesis, structure-engineering, and optimization of earth-abundant electrode materials for advanced electrochemical batteries, including lithium-based batteries, metal-ion batteries, metal-air batteries, fuel cells, flow cells, and etc. Moreover, this Research Topic aims to highlight the strategies and fundamental mechanism for improving the electrochemical behaviors based on both the experimental studies and theoretical simulations, in order to provide guidance of low-cost and high-efficiency materials for commercial application of various electrochemical energy-related devices.

The editorial team welcomes the submission of Original Research, Reviews, Mini Reviews, and Perspectives that report the recent advances in earth-abundant electrode materials for advanced electrochemical batteries in relation to:

- Lithium-based batteries (lithium-ion batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries, lithium-oxygen batteries and etc.)
- Metal-ion batteries (sodium-ion batteries, zinc-ion batteries, potassium-ion batteries, aluminum-ion batteries and etc.)
- Metal-air batteries (zinc-air batteries, sodium-air batteries, aluminum-air batteries and etc.)
- Fuel cells
- Flow cells


Keywords: battery, clean energy, earth-abundant, electrochemistry, energy storage and conversion


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
