    Perovskite oxides as the electrode materials in nonaqueous lithium–oxygen batteries are reviewed. Future research directions of perovskite oxides should focus on the understanding of electrochemical mechanisms during the oxygen reduction and evolution processes, the structure design from nanoparticles to hierarchical porous structures, and the composite incorporation with improved electrical conductivities, catalytic activities, and structural merits.

  2. Recent Advances of Mn-Rich LiFe1-yMnyPO4 (0.5 ≤ y < 1.0) Cathode Materials for High Energy Density Lithium Ion Batteries

    Yuanfu Deng, Chunxiang Yang, Kaixiang Zou, Xusong Qin, Zhenxia Zhao and Guohua Chen

    Mn-rich LiFe1-yMnyPO4 (0.5 ≤ y < 1.0) materials are among the most promising cathode materials for next generation of high-energy-density lithium ion batteries. The recent advances of the development of LiFe1-yMnyPO4, especially on the studies of synthesis strategies, structural features, delithiation/lithiation mechanisms, thermodynamic properties, as well as some aspects for future exploration are outlined in this review.

  3. Chlorine-Enabled Electron Doping in Solution-Synthesized SnSe Thermoelectric Nanomaterials

    An aqueous solution method is developed for the scalable synthesis of Cl-containing SnSe nanoparticles with tuneable particle size and Cl concentration. Hot pressing produces n-type Cl-doped SnSe nanostructured compacts with thermoelectric power factors optimized via control of Cl dopant concentration.

  4. Atomic Modulation of FeCo–Nitrogen–Carbon Bifunctional Oxygen Electrodes for Rechargeable and Flexible All-Solid-State Zinc–Air Battery

    Chang-Yuan Su, Hui Cheng, Wei Li, Zhao-Qing Liu, Nan Li, Zhufeng Hou, Fu-Quan Bai, Hong-Xing Zhang and Tian-Yi Ma

    Bamboo-like FeCo alloy encapsulated in nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes exhibits superior catalytic oxygen reduction and oxygen evolution performance than that of noble metal benchmarks, which benefits from the nitrogen-rich and defect-rich catalyst surface. The all-solid-state zinc–air batteries equipped by the synthesized materials show low charging/discharging overpotentials, long lifetime, and high flexibility, suitable for practical application.

  5. Effect of Polymer–Fullerene Interaction on the Dielectric Properties of the Blend

    The relationship between the dielectric constant and the device performance is investigated in polymer solar cells. The increase in the dielectric constant observed upon polymer–fullerene blending correlates well with device performance, in contrast to the pristine polymer dielectric constant. More importantly, the increase in excited state polarizability upon blending is a key indicator of device performance and is responsible for efficient charge transfer.
