Rechargeable aluminum batteries, which are cost-effective energy storage systems due to the abundance of natural aluminum resources, have emerged as one of the leading candidates for the next generation of rechargeable batteries. Although aluminum refining's electrochemical deposition of aluminum in ionic liquids is well investigated, aluminum ions' reversible electrochemical deposition/dissolution behavior of aluminum ions is not trivial. The electrochemical stability of the aluminum metal anode in IL electrolytes is investigated herein, and the failure mechanism is explained. The inorganic anion of ILs has mainly affected the electrochemical stability, according to the author, whereas organic cation influences the aluminum metal degradation.

Abstract: Abstract Zinc-ion batteries can be one of the most popular electrochemical energy storage units for being non-flammable, low-cost, and environmentally friendly. To solve these problems, we firstly establish [Zn5]2+ sensitive ion in an aqueous Zn electrolyte and secondly build a robust barrier layer on the Zn surface, using a dual-functional organic additive cyclohexanedodecol. At a very low rate of 0. 1 mg mL-1 CHD, long-term reversible Zn plating/stripping could be achieved up to 2200 h at 2 mA cm, 1000 h at 5 mA cm2, and 650 h at 10 mA cm2 at the maximum capacity of 1 mAh cm2 at the fixed capacity of 1 mAh cm2. Such a success may lead to the commercialization of AZIBs for use in grid energy storage and industrial energy storage.

Abstract Lithium metal is the most suitable anode for next-generation lithium-ion batteries. It's highly desired to develop a stable lithium metal anode with uniform lithium deposition. The symmetric cell constructed with the lithium-plated electrode can be cycled for more than 600 h with a low-voltage hysteresis that is more effective than those of electrodes without plasma treatment.

The lithium metal anode is one of the most popular lithium rechargeable batteries due to its ultrahigh theoretical fidelity and low electrode potential. Here, a Li–Zn alloy layer is assembled in situ on Li metal foil by a simple chemical reaction of zinc trifluoromethanesulfonate with Li metal. The Li metal anode with the Li-Zn alloy layer can live in symmetrical cells for more than 500 h under a current density of 2 mA cm2.

Li-metal is one of the most popular anode materials for electrochemical energy storage. However, Li dendrite growth during electrochemical deposition has resulted in poor Coulombic stability and safety issues, and has long stymied the use of rechargeable Li-metal batteries. The anode-free dendritic superstructure exhibits outstanding results, highlighting the importance of rational design for a new collector that can accept Li anodes and provide a long lifespan.

Summary: The manufacture of Li metal anodes while minimizing dendrite growth is a major obstacle for designing high-energy density batteries. Dendrites can appear as a result of an inhomogenous charge delivery or an irregular substrate, and often, the only way to reduce dendrite formation is to avoid entirely building dendrites. These findings indicate that ABCM may be a promising way to maintain Li anode batteries in Li metal batteries, without any chemical/physical modification of the anode.

Due to its ultra-high theoretical capacity and very low failure rate, Lithium metal battery is considered to be the most promising energy storage technologies due to its ultra-high theoretical capacity and extremely low maximum potential. The as-prepared 3D Cu/ZnO/F can reduce Li dendrite growth and minimize the rapid volume change of Li metal anode during the cycling process, resulting in a stable solid electrolyte interface layer and electrode structure. Both ZnO and fluorine's synergistic effects on inducing uniform deposition of lithium by providing bonding locations can minimize the production of lithium dendrites and therefore increase lithium battery electrochemical efficiency.

As the industry continues to develop, electric power production continues to rise, while the demand for high-capacity batteries for efficient operation of the electric power plants has never been higher than ever before. Because of its high theoretical capacity, Si has been gaining a lot of attention lately as an anode electrode material. The initial capacity of the Cu current-collector is proportional to the laser's production, and the Cu current-collector's initial capacity, which was produced at the highest laser output, is 396. 7% higher than that of the coin cell prepared with a blank Cu current-collector. The charge transfer resistance of the coin cell made with the Cu current-collector and irradiated with the highest laser output is 190. 2% lower than that of the coin cell prepared with the empty Cu current-collector.
