  • Abstract
  • References
The development of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is being driven by the ever-increasing demand for high energy density and excellent rate performance. Charge transfer kinetics and polarization theory, considered as basic principles for charge regulation in the LIBs, indicate that the rapid transfer of both electrons and ions is vital to the electrochemical reaction process. Graphene, a promising candidate for charge regulation in high-performance LIBs, has received extensive investigations due to its excellent carrier mobility, large specific surface area and structure tunability, etc. Recent progresses on the structural design and interfacial modification of graphene to regulate the charge transport in LIBs have been summarized. Besides, the structureperformance relationships between the structure of the graphene and its dedicated applications for LIBs have also been clarified in detail. Taking graphene as a typical example to explore the mechanism of charge regulation will outline ways to further understand and improve carbon-based nanomaterials towards the next generation of electrochemical energy storage devices.
