Inorganic materials have attracted a huge and ever-increasing interest as electrodes, i.e., cathodes and anodes for energy storage and conversion to develop high energy and high power lithium batteries, including lithium metal polymer (LMP) and lithium-ion (LIB) batteries applied to hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and electric vehicles (EVs). Both theoretical and experimental studies from a range of disciplines (e.g., physics, chemistry, electrochemistry, nanoscience) are essential in this ongoing endeavour.
The main focus of this Special Issue is on the latest advances made in materials in the area of electrochemical, energy storage and conversion in the area of lithium batteries (LMP and LIB). These advances cover novel synthetic methods, crystal chemistry, structure and physico-chemical properties, redox reactions and electrochemical performance.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
