A Brief History of Conducting Polymers Applied in Lithium-ion Batteries


A Brief History of Conducting Polymers Applied in Lithium-ion Batteries

Suzhe Liang, Yonggao Xia, Peter Müller-Buschbaum, Ya-Jun Cheng

As the most important portable power source at present, lithium-ion batteries still suffer from several problems due to lack of perfect electrode materials. Conducting polymers, owning both good electrical and physical properties, not only can composite with conventional electrode materials to improve their electrochemical performance but also are able to separately used as electrodes. In this chapter, the related studies of conducting polymer applied in electrodes will be reviewed by a chronological approach. With the unique perspective, this chapter will shed light on the future trends of the studies on applications of conducting polymers in lithium-ion batteries.
