Nanostructures derived from metal-organic frameworks for Na-ion batteries

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA)

Abstract


  • This project aims to overcome poor reaction kinetics and the lack of effective anode materials owing to the large size of sodium-ions in high performance sodium-ion batteries. The project will explore a series of functional nanomaterials with unique nanostructures and complex compositions, enabled by metal-organic framework assisted synthetic methods. High performance sodium ion batteries are demonstrating great potential to meet the future demand for large-scale and low-cost stationary energy storage. However, their practical implementation is still hindered by their poor reaction kinetics and the lack of effective anode materials owing to the large size of sodium-ions. The project outcomes will promote the commercialisation of sodium ion batteries and power Australia's sustainable economy in the long run.
