Abstract

The growing demand for sustainable energy storage devices requires rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with higher specific capacity and stricter safety standards. Ni-rich layered transition metal oxides outperform other cathode materials and have attracted much attention in both academia and industry. Lithium-ion batteries composed of Ni-rich layered cathodes and graphite anodes (or Li-metal anodes) are suitable to meet the energy requirements of the next generation of rechargeable batteries. However, the instability of Ni-rich cathodes poses serious challenges to large-scale commercialization. This paper reviews various degradation processes occurring at the cathode, anode, and electrolyte in Ni-rich cathode-based LIBs. It highlights the recent achievements in developing new stabilization strategies for the various battery components in future Ni-rich cathode-based LIBs.
