Abstract

This chapter offers a brief overview on state-of-the-art active anode and cathode and inactive electrolyte, separator, binder, and current collector materials currently used in commercial lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Their major advantages are highlighted, which explain why LIBs are presently the leading battery technology. In addition, their major limitations with respect to future large-scale applications in electric vehicles and/or stationary energy storage devices are also reviewed.
