The review contains information on modern methods and approaches to the obtaining of solid lithium-accumulating compounds of various classes, their modification with the purpose of increasing the properties of accumulation of lithium ions in the structure, accelerating the kinetics of reversible lithium insertion, the formation of electroactive composites based on these compounds, composite electrode layers on a metal substrate using these composites. The review provides a comparative analysis of the literature data, as well as the results obtained by the author himself.
