Emerging energy technologies, aimed at addressing the challenges of energy scarcity and environmental pollution, have become a focal point for society. However, these actualities present significant challenges for modern energy storage devices. Lithium metal batteries (LMBs) have gained considerable attention due to their high energy density. Nonetheless, their use of liquid electrolytes raises safety concerns, including dendritic growth, electrode corrosion, and electrolyte decomposition. In light of these challenges, solid-state batteries (SSBs) have emerged as a highly promising next-generation energy storage solution by leveraging lithium metal as the anode to achieve improved safety and energy density. Metal organic frameworks (MOFs), characterized by their porous structure, ordered crystal frame, and customizable configuration, have garnered interest as potential materials for enhancing solid-state electrolytes (SSEs) in SSBs. The integration of MOFs into SSEs offers opportunities to enhance the electrochemical performance and optimize the interface between SSEs and electrodes. This is made possible by leveraging the high porosity, functionalized structures, and abundant open metal sites of MOFs. However, the rational design of high-performance MOF-based SSEs for high-energy Li metal SSBs (LMSSBs) remains a significant challenge. In this comprehensive review, we present an overview of recent advancements in MOF-based SSEs for LMSSBs, focusing on strategies for interface optimization and property enhancement. We categorize these SSEs into two main types: MOF-based quasi-solid-state electrolytes and MOF-based all solid-state electrolytes. Within these categories, various subtypes are identified based on the combination mode, additional materials, formation state, preparation method, and interface optimization measures employed. The review also highlights the existing challenges associated with MOF materials in SSBs applications and proposes potential solutions and future development prospects to guide the advancement of MOFs-based SSEs. By providing a comprehensive assessment of the applications of MOFs in LMSSBs, this review aims to offer valuable insights and guidance for the development of MOF-based SSEs, addressing the key issues faced by these materials in SSBs technology. © 2023 Central South University.
