The issues related to energy and environment are attracting more and more attentions with the proposing of sustainable development concept in twenty-first century. The exhausting of fossil fuels leads to energy crisis and environmental pollution, which generates a huge challenge for the persistent development of human society. Therefore, exploiting and utilizing new clean energy are of great significance in scientific research. As a crucial part of the energy storage materials, lithium-ion batteries play the most important role in the utilization of new energies, such as electric vehicles and large-scale energy storage. In China, the Ministry of Science and Technology issued New Energy Project for Electric Vehicle of National Key Research to promote the scientific research of power batteries, among which Li-ion battery is the predominant technology. Besides, the application of Li-ion battery in portable electronic devices, such as laptop, cell phone, and digital camera, is highly universal nowadays. Moreover, with the development of advance technologies like artificial intelligence, more and more mobile and intelligentialized electronic devices, e.g., drones, robots, and walking machine, lead to surged demand for Li-ion battery technologies. Hence, there is no doubt that developing Li-ion battery technology is meaningful for sustainable development in the future.
