Summary

With the depletion of natural resources and the deterioration of the environment, people pay more and more attention to sustainable development. Biomass materials and their derivatives(including wood), have good application prospects in the field of energy storage and conversion materials such as lithium batteries due to their environmental friendliness, unique structural characteristics and high reaction activity.


In the process of preparation, processing and application of the biomass materials for lithium batteries, pollutants will inevitably be produced. Therefore, how to realize the green preparation, green processing and green application of biomass derived carbon materials is the key direction that researchers need to consider and design.


This special issue is dedicated to the most recent advances in research of the green preparation, green processing and green application of the lithium batteries. We invite scientists and investigators to contribute original research and review articles, which address the topics of the special issue.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

●Green preparation of the biomass materials for the lithium batteries;

●Green processing of the biomass materials for the lithium batteries;

●Green design of the biomass materials for the lithium batteries;

●Life-cycle assessment of the lithium batteries containing the biomass materials;

●Thermal management technology of the lithium batteries containing the biomass materials;

●Safety assessment of the lithium batteries containing the biomass materials;

●Systems modeling and simulation of the lithium batteries containing the biomass materials;

●Recovery of waste lithium batteries by the biomass materials.

    Formation Mechanism of Biomass Aromatic Hydrocarbon Tar on Quantum Chemistry

    Bo Chen, Bo Liu, Yong Chao, Chao Zhong
    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.10, No.12, pp. 3491-3504, 2022, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2022.021302

    Abstract The formation process of aromatic hydrocarbon tar during the pyrolysis process of biomass components of cellulose and lignin was carried out by quantum chemical calculation based on density functional theory method B3LYP/6-31G++(d, p). 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural was chosen as the model compound of cellulose and hemicellulose, and syringaldehyde was chosen as the model compound of lignin. The calculation results show that the formation process of cellulose monocyclic aromatic hydrocarbon tar is the conversion process of benzene ring from furan ring, and the highest reaction energy barrier appears in the process of decarbonylation, which is 370.8 kJ/mol. The formation of lignin monocyclic aromatic… More >
