About This Topic

Lithium-air batteries with a lithium anode and an air cathode are one of the promising high energy density batteries for electrical vehicles beyond current lithium-ion batteries, because of their exceptional high theoretical energy density. After the first report of the lithium-air batteries by Abraham and Jiang in 1996, many researchers have jointed to develop the high energy density lithium-air batteries. However, many challengeable items, such as power density, cyclic performance, and elimination of water and carbon dioxide in air, should be solved for the practical application. In this special issue, original researches, reviews and perspectives are welcome on the aspects of the materials, design, and new concept for lithium-air batteries.
