Lithium-ion batteries have been suffering from the safety issue originated from the combustible non-aqueous electrolytes. Nonflammable inorganic solid electrolytes will make them completely free from the issue. This advantage is becoming more and more important, because much bigger batteries are now required to be mounted in EVs and HEVs, where the safety issue is more serious. ...

  The unique features of graphene, including its ultra-high conductivity, 2D nanostructure and its structural flexibility, impart this novel carbon material with great potential to enhance the electrochemical performance of electrode materials for Li-ion batteries. Several cathode and anode materials, such as LiFePO4, SnO2 and silicon have been successfully modified by graphene in our group. The obtained composite...
