Abstract

MOFs are an emerging class of porous materials with potential applications in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Despite the numerous advantages of MOFs, challenges are still pervasive in its application in LIBs. Herein, we review recent advances in the field of MOFs applied in electrodes and electrolytes of LIBs based on the structural design of MOFs. First, low dimensions, inter spaces and composites are introduced and its application research progress is summarized. Then, the synthesis strategies of MOFs and its derivatives are briefly reviewed, including template synthesis and post-synthetic modifications. On this basis, the effective application mechanism of MOFs in LIBs is summarized. Overall, these design rationales and synthesis strategies represent general models of MOFs applied in LIBs, and which are also beneficial for boosting material innovations in other filed of energy storage.
