Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Chapter 6, ‘On the Surface Chemistry of Cathode Materials for Li-Ion Batteries’ by Susai Francis Amalraj, Ronit Sharabi, Hadar Sclar and Doron Aurbach (Bar-Ilan University, Israel) provides a concise and practical introduction to the different cathode chemistry types (including layered oxides, spinels and olivines) and diagnostic methods to assess the cathode-electrolyte interphase. Issues such as metal dissolution from the cathode and subsequent precipitation at the anode (leading to performance loss) and the use of additives or active materials coatings to control the cathode interphase and limit unwanted side reactions are described. References to greater details in a number of their own publications are also provided.
