Batteries find their applications in an increasing range of every-day products: discmen, mobile phones and electric cars need very different battery types.

This handbook gives a concise survey about the materials used in modern battery technology. The physico-chemical fundamentals are as well treated as are the environmental and recycling aspects. It will be a profound reference source for anyone working in the research and development of new battery systems, regardless if chemist, physicist or engineer.
