Carbon-coated sodium vanadium phosphate for high-performance sodium-ion batteries: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0


Summary

Room temperature sodium ion batteries are possible for big vitality storage tools as a result of they’re each secure and cheap. Nevertheless, the low digital conductivity of sodium ion battery cathode materials is an inherent flaw. Right here, the solid-phase carbothermal discount technique was used to create Na3V2(PO4)3/C composites coated with 4 completely different carbon sources (Vc, maltose, sucrose, and PEG-2000). XRD and SEM have been used to look at the crystal construction and microstructure; the electrochemical properties of 4 samples have been examined utilizing a relentless present cost discharge take a look at and AC impedance spectroscopy. Consequently, the samples coated with PEG-2000 have been recognized to have a superb microstructure and good electrochemical properties. Particularly, the discharge capability decays from 103.9 mAh/g to 93.4 mAh/g after 340 cycles, and the corresponding capability retention price is 89.89%. Furthermore, the excellent electrochemical efficiency of Na3V2(PO4)3/C composites demonstrates that it’s a promising materials for the sensible software of sodium-ion batteries.
