Ion Migration In Electrodes Revealed
In a family of fluorosulfate materials of interest for rechargeable battery cathodes, higher calculated activation energies for sodium-ion movement in NaFeSO4F compared with lithium-ion movement in LiFeSO4F help explain the poor performance of NaFeSO4F as an electrode material (Chem. Mater., DOI: 10.1021/cm200683n). A better understanding of the differences between sodium- and lithium-based materials could point the way to development of sodium-based cathodes, reducing pressure on global lithium supplies.
