This reference work will prove invaluable for everyone involved with lithium-ion batteries. This includes research students, product developers, and cell and battery manufacturers to list but a few. It is logically laid out, starting with the fundamentals, written by experts from the disciplines of chemistry, physics and materials science.
Following the in-depth coverage of the science and technology of anodes, cathodes and electrolytes the book seamlessly moves on to the engineering topics of battery applications. These too are divided into groups such as electric vehicles, spacecraft, and medical applications.
The academic will appreciate the multitude of references to scientific journals; the engineer will appreciate the clear explanations of difficult topics in battery chemistry, often aided by clear and informative diagrams and pictures; the technologist can follow the evolution of lithium-ion batteries from the laboratory to the final application.
This book is an excellent technical reference book that belongs in every lithium-ion battery company library. Individuals put off by the price should be patient and wait for the paperback edition to be released. Either way this is a lithium-ion boffin's must-have.
