The low Li+ transference number (tLi+), or the relatively small proportion of Li+ conductivity with respect to total ionic conductivity, has been identified as a key drawback of binary electrolytes. The lack of approaches to restrain anion mobility results in the poor cyclability of energy-dense electrodes as the high rate of anion movement induces concentration polarization. Herein, we propose regulating the ion conduction behavior using a nanocomposite separator fabricated via the functionalization of a glass fiber (GF) separator with a metal–organic framework (MOF). The open metal sites in the MOF serve as the anchoring sites for anions, and the resulting tLi+ is increased by 100%. The MOF-functionalized nanocomposite separator with high tLi+ substantially improves the electrochemical performance of a Li metal anode, with an areal capacity exceeding 2 mA h cm−2, and intercalation-type electrodes (LiFePO4 and Li4Ti5O12), with high active material loadings of 45 mg cm−2.

: Solid-state electrolytes are the key to the development of lithium-based batteries with dramatically improved energy density and safety. Inspired by ionic channels in biological systems, a novel class of pseudo solid-state electrolytes with biomimetic ionic channels is reported herein. This is achieved by complexing the anions of an electrolyte to the open metal sites of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), which transforms the MOF scaffolds into ionic-channel analogs with lithium-ion conduction a...

It is widely accepted that for electric vehicles to be accepted by consumers and to achieve wide market penetration, ranges of at least 500 km at an affordable cost are required. Therefore, significant improvements to lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) in terms of energy density and cost along the battery value chain are required, while other key performance indicators, such as lifetime, safety, fast-charging ability and low-temperature performance, need to be enhanced or at least sustained. Here, we ...

Today’s electric vehicles are almost exclusively powered by lithium-ion batteries, but there is a long way to go before electric vehicles become dominant in the global automotive market. In addition to policy support, widespread deployment of electric vehicles requires high-performance and low-cost energy storage technologies, including not only batteries but also alternative electrochemical devices. Here, we provide a comprehensive evaluation of various batteries and hydrogen fuel cells that ha...

In addition to their conventional uses, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have recently emerged as an interesting class of functional materials and precursors of inorganic materials for electrochemical energy storage and conversion technologies. This class of MOF-related materials can be broadly categorized into two groups: pristine MOF-based materials and MOF-derived functional materials. Although the diversity in composition and structure leads to diverse and tunable functionalities of MOF-based...

The continued search for routes to improve the power and energy density of lithium ion batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronics has resulted in significant innovation in all cell components, particularly in electrode materials design. In this Review, we highlight an often less noted route to improving energy density: increasing the Li+ transference number of the electrolyte. Turning to Newman’s original lithium ion battery models, we demonstrate that electrolytes with modestly hi...

Summary Substrates able to rectify transport of ions based on charge and/or size are ubiquitous in biological systems. Electrolytes and interphases that selectively transport electrochemically active ions are likewise of broad interest in all electrical energy storage technologies. In lithium-ion batteries, electrolytes with single- or near-single-ion conductivity reduce losses caused by ion polarization. In emergent lithium or sodium metal batteries, they maintain high conductivity at the anode...

Dendrite growth and low coulombic efficiency are two major factors that limit the utilization of Li metal electrodes in future generations of high-energy-density rechargeable batteries. This article reports the first study on metal–organic framework (MOF) materials for boosting the electrochemical performance of Li metal electrodes and demonstrates the power of molecular-structure functionalization for realizing desirable ion transport and Li metal nucleation and growth. We show that dendrite-fr...

Successful strategies for stabilizing electrodeposition of reactive metals, including lithium, sodium, and aluminum are a requirement for safe, high-energy electrochemical storage technologies that utilize these metals as anodes. Unstable deposition produces high-surface area dendritic structures at the anode/electrolyte interface, which causes premature cell failure by complex physical and chemical processes that have presented formidable barriers to progress. Here, it is reported that hybrid e...

Metal-organic frameworks (MOF) are promising media for achieving solid-state Mg2+ conduction and developing a magnesium-based battery. To this end, the chemical behavior and transport properties of an Mg(TFSI)2/DME electrolyte system inside Mg-MOF-74 were studied by density functional theory (DFT). We found that inside the MOF chemical environment, solvent and anion molecules occupy the coordinatively unsaturated open metal sites of Mg-MOF-74, while Mg2+ ions adsorb directly onto the carboxylate...

An ionic liquid (IL) laden metal-organic framework (MOF) sodium-ion electrolyte has been developed for ambient-temperature quasi-solid-state sodium batteries. The MOF skeleton is designed according to a UIO-66 (Universitetet i Oslo) structure. A sodium sulfonic (-SO3Na) group grafted to the UIO-based MOF ligand improves the Na+-ion conductivity. Upon lading with a sodium-based ionic liquid (Na-IL), sodium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide (NaTFSI) in 1-n-butyl-1-methylpyrrolidinium bis(trifluoro...
Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are presently dominant mobile power sources due to their high energy density, long lifespan, and low self-discharging rates. The safety of LIBs has been concerned all the time and become the main problem restricting the development of high energy density LIBs. As a significant part of LIBs, the properties of separators have a significant effect on the capacity and performances of batteries and play an important role in the safety of LIBs. In recent years, researchers...
Lithium–sulfur (Li–S) batteries have emerged as promising energy storage devices due to their high theoretical specific energy densities; their practical applications, however, have been restricted due to their poor cycling stability arising from the shuttle effect of the S cathode and dangerous Li dendrite growth. S and Li can be encapsulated into porous framework hosts to address these issues. Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs)/covalent-organic frameworks (COFs) have shown great potential due to ...

ABSTRACT Secondary metal-based batteries (lithium metal batteries, sodium metal batteries and zinc metal batteries) have appealed to increasing attention because of their high energy density. However, uncontrolled metal dendrite growth and infinite volume expansion can readily cause cycle performance deterioration and serious security concerns, which restrict their practical applications to a large extent. Recently, some coping strategies based on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and their derive...
