Favorable Lithium Nucleation on Lithiophilic Framework Porphyrin for Dendrite-Free Lithium Metal Anodes

Figure 1

Schematic of Li nucleation on host materials with different lithiophilicities. (a) Conventional hosts with poor affinity of Li render promiscuous nucleation and dendrite growth. (b) Favorable Li nucleation on lithiophilic hosts with precisely constructed lithiophilic sites to afford dendrite-free Li metal anodes.
