Abstract

Global efforts to reduce emissions and the need for improved energy storage for mobile power applications have stimulated extensive research on new battery technologies. Lithium-ion batteries have emerged as the principal technology for energy storage in electric vehicles, portable electronic devices, and grid storage; strongly driving demand for component materials. Nevertheless, substantial improvements in performance, safety and cost are required, creating a need for new technical solutions. Here, borates are investigated for the enhancement of energy storage. As confirmed by a deep exploration of the literature and further experimentation, borates show excellent potential as additives to graphite anodes to improve the properties of lithium-ion batteries.
