At present batteries worth more than 30 billion USD are produced every year and the de- mand is still increasing rapidly as more and more mobile electronic end electric devices ranging from mobile phones to electric vehicles are entering into our life. The various ma- terials required to manufacture these batteries are mostly supplied by the chemical industry. Ten thousands of chemists, physicists and material scientists are focusing on the develop- ment of new materials for energy storage and conversion. As the performance of the bat- tery system is in many cases a key issue deciding the market success of a cordless product there is in fact a kind of worldwide race for advanced batteries.

Unfortunately, the chemistry of batteries is usually dealt with in a fairly superficial manner in common textbooks of inorganic or solid state chemistry. On the other hand, there are many books specialising on batteries, however, concentrating mostly on their basic electro- chemistry, performance and construction. The intention of this book is to fill the gap and to provide deeper insight into chemical as well as electrochemical reactions and processes related with the discharging and charging of batteries. The Handbook of Battery Materials is a comprehensive source of detailed information written by leading experts. I believe it will be a valuable tool for all those who are teaching inorganic chemistry, polymer chem- istry or materials science at a graduate or higher level and, of course, for all those who are doing research in the fields of materials for energy storage and conversion.

There are countless materials which have been proposed and investigated for battery appli- cations. The Handbook of Battery Materials concentrates on those materials which have already found real and considerable practical applications and I hope that colleagues who do not find their "babies" included will understand.

The organization of the Handbook of Battery Materials is simple, dividing between aque- ous electrolyte batteries and alkali metal batteries and further in anodes, cathodes, electro- lytes and separators. There are also three more general chapters about thermodynamics and mechanistics of electrode reactions, practical batteries and the global competition of pri- mary and secondary batteries.

Finally I would like to express my thanks to all the authors who contributed to this volume, to colleagues who supported this work by their advise and to Karin Scholze who managed all the practical problems related with the collection and compilation of 23 articles in due term.
