Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Energy Storage: Challenges and Opportunities, Volume Nineteen provides an objective, realistic overview on the use of nanomaterials for various rechargeable electrochemical energy storage systems. It delivers a clear message on opportunities and critical aspects for the application of nanomaterials in currently available commercial devices (i.e., lithium-ion, supercapacitors, lithium-ion capacitors) and in the most promising battery technologies (e.g., lithium-sulphur, sodium-ion, metal-air, multivalent-ion batteries, dual-ion). In addition, it covers the use of nanomaterials on two of the most promising research pathways, specifically solid electrolytes and nanostructured alkali metal interfaces. Finally, the book outlines future use scenarios in developed and industrial applications. Nanomaterials have been considered as the “holy grail” of electrochemical energy storage during recent decades. Compounds and composites made of nanomaterials have opened unexpected research avenues, allowing entirely new classes of materials to be explored.

About the Editors

Rinaldo Raccichini

Rinaldo Raccichini received his master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Camerino. He was awarded his doctorate from the University of Münster for work on the synthesis and electrochemical characterisation of active materials for metal-ion batteries and supercapacitors, followed by a research fellowship at the University of Southampton on the study and characterisation of materials for sulfur-based batteries. Rinaldo then worked at the UK National Physical Laboratory as electrochemical energy storage higher research scientist. He also served as editorial office for the Journal of Power Sources for several years Rinaldo was appointed as editorial board member of Electrochem and Chemistry Proceedings journals and guest editor for Energies. He is an indiepdent reviewer for various research institutes and peer-reviewed scientific journals. Rinaldo is currently a senior editor at Springer-Nature and his main scientific interests lie in the study of EES systems. More broadly, he retains a strong interest in all the different aspects of energy production, harvesting, storage, transformation, consumption, and sustainability.
