Room-temperature rechargeable sodium-ion batteries (SIBs), in view of the large availability and low cost of sodium raw materials, represent an important class of electrochemical systems suitable for application in large-scale energy storage. In this work, we report a novel, high power SIB formed by coupling the layered P2-Na0.7CoO2 cathode with the graphite anode in an optimized ether-based electrolyte. The study firstly addresses the electrochemical optimization of the two electrode materials and then the realization and characterization of the novel SIB based on their combination. The cell represents an original sodium rocking chair battery obtained combining the intercalation/de-intercalation processes of sodium within the cathode and anode layers.

Abstract

Room-temperature rechargeable sodium-ion batteries (SIBs), in view of the large availability and low cost of sodium raw materials, represent an important class of electrochemical systems suitable for application in large-scale energy storage. In this work, we report a novel, high power SIB formed by coupling the layered P2-Na0.7CoO2 cathode with the graphite anode in an optimized ether-based electrolyte. The study firstly addresses the electrochemical optimization of the two electrode materials and then the realization and characterization of the novel SIB based on their combination. The cell represents an original sodium rocking chair battery obtained combining the intercalation/de-intercalation processes of sodium within the cathode and anode layers. We show herein that this battery, favored by suitable electrode/electrolyte combination, offers unique performance in terms of cycle life, efficiency and, especially, power capability.
