In this Minireview, we briefly discuss the recent progress in the field of tin oxide (SnO2) based nanosized and nanostructured materials used as conversion and alloying/de-alloying type anodes in lithium ion batteries (LIBs) and beyond (sodium and potassium ion batteries). The first section addresses the importance of the initial SnO2 micro- and nanostructure on the conversion and alloying/de-alloying reaction upon lithiation and its impact on the microstructure and cyclability of the anodes. A further section is dedicated to recent advances in the fabrication of diverse 0 to 3D nanostructures to overcome stability issues induced by the large volume changes during cycling. Furthermore, the role of doping on the conductivity as well as synergistic effects of redox active and inactive dopants on the reversible lithium storage capacity and rate capability are discussed. Furthermore, synthesis and electrochemical properties of nanostructured SnO2/C composites are reviewed. The broad research spectrum of SnO2 anode materials is finally reflected in a brief overview of recent work published on sodium and potassium ion batteries.
