Abstract

Nanotechnology is an emerging and highly promising technology to develop efficient and enhanced batteries. This chapter discusses the nanotechnology-driven synthesis and surface modification techniques for cathode materials to improve lithium-ion batteries. Various approaches for synthesis of nanostructured cathode materials with enhanced properties and nanoscale surface modification on cathodes with improved electrochemical performances are described. The chapter concludes with a comparison of the different techniques discussed and addresses the importance of ...
