Sodium-ion batteries represent one of the most promising alternatives to lithium-ion technology and with increasing concerns regarding the sustainability of lithium sources, are attracting growing interest. Furthermore, limitations on the availability of the transition metals used in the manufacturing of cathode materials, together with questionable mining practices, are driving development towards more sustainable elements. Due to the high abundance and cost-effectiveness of sodium, as well as its very suitable redox potential (close to that of lithium), sodium-ion battery (SIB) technology offers tremendous potential to be a counterpart to lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) in different application scenarios, such as stationary energy storage and low-cost vehicles. This potential is reflected by the major investments in SIBs worldwide, confirming the bright future ahead for this clean technology.
For this special issue, we invite novel contributions, including original articles, short communications, (mini)reviews and perspectives on all aspects of sodium-ion batteries including, but not limited to:
- Cathode materials (including oxides, polyanionic materials, Prussian blue analogues and organics)
- Anode materials (carbons, metal oxides and chalcogenides, alloys and composites and organics)
- Fluorinated and non-fluorinated electrolyte formulations, including new salts, solvents and their combination
- Non-active cell elements such as novel binders, separators and current collectors
- Advanced characterisation techniques to determine bulk and local structure of active components, interface and electrochemical processes occurring in Na-ion batteries.
- Atomistic modelling of battery components and multi-scale modelling
- Degradation processes
- Electrode processing and manufacturing
- Full-cell studies
- Technoeconomic analysis
