Lisainfo
There is a great deal of current interest in the development of rechargeable batteries with high energy storage capability due to an increasing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) with driving ranges comparable to those of gasoline-powered vehicles. Among various types of batteries under development, a Li–O2 battery delivers the highest theoretical energy density; thus, it is considered a promising energy storage technology for EV applications. Cathode (oxygen electrode) is the key component of Li–O2 battery as the major battery reactions, i.e., oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) occurs at its surface. Low round-trip efficiency, poor reversibility, and poor power capability are the major challenges faced by the cathodes of the Li–O2 battery. A cathode, which can overcome these challenges, is essential to success of the Li–O2 battery as a major energy storage technology of the future. The main purpose of this study is to develop such cathode materials (catalyst or framework) for the Li–O2 battery.
It is demonstrated that various aspects of cathode design; like material selection, synthesis approach, synthesis parameters and nanostructural engineering greatly influence its elctrochemical performance in Li–O2 batteries. A ratioally designed cathode is essiental for widespred commercialization of Li–O2 batteries. It is concluded that both chemical stability and physical properties like high surface area and porous structure of the cathode materials is very important to overcome the challanges faced by the cathodes of Li–O2 batteries.
