Abstract

original image

Organic electrode materials offer highly engineerable choices for the construction of potentially sustainable and cost-effective rechargeable lithium batteries, which are currently dominated by inorganic intercalation compounds. On page 742, J. Chen and co-workers present an exhaustive overview of thirty-years' research efforts in the field, with emphasis on the working principles, development histories, and established design strategies. With comprehensive analysis and performance comparisons, this review provides a guide to this emerging research area.
