Electrodes adopting multi-electron reactions provide significant opportunities for the development of high-energy lithium ion batteries. Most conversion reaction based transition metal compounds exhibit much higher theoretical capacities than graphite. Among the transition metal compounds, molybdenum compounds have proved to be very interesting, since they often exhibit various stoichiometry, tuned band gaps, and rich chemical valences. These features provide an extraordinary basis for the full utilization of molybdenum compounds in advanced energy storage systems.
