Na-Ion Batteries

The Science Partner Journal Energy Material Advances is now considering submissions for a special issue on Na-Ion Batteries.

Scope

How can we efficiently store electricity in chemicals and release it in terms of users’ demands? Rechargeable battery technologies enable us to fulfill this requirement, among which lithium ion batteries have become common in all aspects of our lives. However, with the increasing growth and evolution of our society, no single battery type is competent in every single application, and there is always a strong demand to explore new options. Among these options are sodium ion batteries, which have a similar working principle to lithium ion batteries which undergo rapid development and are suitable for large-scale energy storage due to the abundant resources and even distribution. This special issue focuses on the current state of development of sodium ion batteries, with special emphasis on key elements that potentially promote their application. The issue aims to highlight: new principles to design high-performance cathode and anode materials, new insights into electrode/electrolyte interface, advances in liquid and solid electrolytes, the importance of combination of DFT simulation, pioneering attempts of advanced characterizations, and the latest progress of engineering attempts.
