Materials to Electrodes PD772319

Topics: Advanced Technologies Batteries , Battery cell chemistry , Battery packs , Lithium-ion batteries , Materials properties , Sustainable development

This course provides a deep yet simple explanation of the operational principles of a rechargeable battery. The course spotlights the importance and discusses the fundamentals of the ‘electrochemical cell’ which is the heart of any battery system independent of the storage size. A direct link is set forth between the chemical nature of the cell components and the storage properties of interest such as ‘electromotive force’ and gravimetric & volumetric capacities. Specific attention is directed towards lithium-ion batteries by presenting more details about the materials of choice for the anode/cathode together with their synthesis methods.


  • Name the main components of a battery and know their purpose
  • Summarize the main differences between lithium-ion batteries and other (earlier) types of rechargeable batteries
  • Measure, report, and understand the status of a battery using the common technical vocabulary in the battery community
  • Summarize what type of redox reactions happen at the anode and cathode of a cell
  • Summarize the state of the art active-materials in lithium-ion batteries
  • Relate the structure of a material to its performance in the battery
