Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used for consumer electronics with one of the best energy-to-weight ratios. Beyond consumer electronics, lithium-ion batteries are growing in popularity for electric vehicles due to their high energy density, long cycle life, and high-rate performance.
In recent years, new electrode materials with unique physical and chemical properties have been designed to meet the requirements of the automotive industry. However, the high cost of lithium-ion batteries is still a major challenge, and the optimization of existing active materials and exploration of novel electrodes are urgent matters.
This Special Issue focuses on the optimization of existing electrodes and the exploration of novel electrodes for lithium-ion end solid state batteries. We welcome authors to submit relevant articles to this issue to share the lastest trends and promote the development of high specific capacity batteries.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
