In order to develop high capacity electrode materials with next generation Li-ion batteries, intensive research effort has been actively devoted to satisfy the power demands for electronic devices, electric vehicles and energy storage units for renewable energy. This review focuses on high capacity Si based nanostructured anode materials composed of Si and various inactive phase materials. This review is devoted mainly to their electrochemical performances and technical issues when they were employed as anodes for Li-ion batteries.
