Special Issue Introduction

In an era characterized by growing environmental concerns and an urgent need for sustainable energy solutions, the development of advanced energy storage systems has emerged as a pivotal area of research. Among the diverse energy storage technologies, aqueous batteries have garnered substantial attention as a promising alternative to conventional lithium-ion batteries. This Special Issue, titled "Aqueous Batteries: Materials, Mechanisms, and Applications", is dedicated to exploring the materials, mechanisms, and applications of aqueous batteries and the exciting prospects they hold for the future of energy storage.

Aqueous batteries are a class of electrochemical energy storage devices that employ water-based electrolytes, distinguishing them from their non-aqueous counterparts that use organic solvents. This crucial distinction offers several distinct advantages, including enhanced safety, reduced environmental impact, and potentially superior cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, aqueous batteries have exhibited significant potential for various applications, ranging from portable electronics to large-scale energy storage systems in renewable energy.

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art research on aqueous batteries. It covers a wide range of key topics, including but not limited to:
● Advanced Electrode Materials: Exploration of novel materials and design strategies to improve the performance of aqueous battery electrodes;
● Electrochemical Mechanisms: In-depth investigation of the fundamental electrochemical processes occurring within aqueous batteries;
● Innovative Battery Architectures: Discussion of pioneering designs and configurations for aqueous battery systems;
● Applications in Energy Storage: Examination of the practical applications of aqueous batteries in grid energy storage, electric vehicles, and portable electronics.

Sustainability and Environmental Impact: Assessment of the environmental benefits and sustainability aspects of aqueous battery technology.
