Abstract


  • Presently, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are the most promising

    commercialized electrochemical energy storage systems.

    Unfortunately, the limited resource of Li results in increasing

    cost for its scalable application and a general consciousness of

    the need to find new type of energy storage technologies. Very

    recently, substantial effort has been invested to sodium-ion batteries

    (SIBs) due to their effectively unlimited nature of sodium

    resources. Furthermore, the potential of Li/Li+ is 0.3 V lower

    than that of Na/Na+, which makes it more effective to limit the

    electrolyte degradation on the outer surface of the electrode.[1]

    Nevertheless, one major obstacle for the commercial application

    of SIBs is the larger ionic radius of Na+ (0.98 Å) which is

    0.29 Å larger than that of Li+, resulting in easier structural degradation

    for the Na+ host materials.[2,3] As anode materials for

    SIBs, the traditional carbon-based materials like hard carbon[4]

    and porous carbon,[5,6] tin (Sn),[7] and antimony (Sb)[8] show

    poor cycle performance due to their large volume expansion

    caused by Na+ insertion.
