Abstract

Zn-ion batteries are regarded as the most promising batteries for next-generation, large-scale energy storage because of their low cost, high safety, and eco-friendly nature. The use of aqueous electrolytes results in poor reversibility and leads to many challenges related to the Zn anode. Electrolyte additives can effectively address many such challenges, including dendrite growth and corrosion. This review provides a comprehensive introduction to the major challenges in and current strategies used for Zn anode protection. In particular, an in-depth and fundamental understanding is provided of the various functions of electrolyte additives, including electrostatic shielding, adsorption, in situ solid electrolyte interphase formation, enhancing water stability, and surface texture regulation. Potential future research directions for electrolyte additives used in aqueous Zn-ion batteries are also discussed. © 2023 The Authors. Advanced Science published by Wiley-VCH GmbH.
