NASICON Electrodes for Sodium-Ion Batteries


NASICON Electrodes for Sodium-Ion Batteries

Rekha Sharma, Sapna, Kritika S. Sharma and Dinesh Kumar

The incessantly growing demand for energy storage is attracting the researcher’s attention to develop consistent, effective, and ecologically harmless electrochemical systems for energy storage. Sodium‐ion batteries (SIBs) are emergent as one of the utmost efficient large‐scale systems for energy storage due to the great accessibility of raw sodium resources and their cost-effective assets. Sodium Super Ionic Conductor (NASICON) electrodes-based materials have offered an opportunity precisely for SIBs as a next-generation energy storage device because of their unique properties. NASICON electrodes have been extensively proven to demonstrate enhanced and miscellaneous features for SIBs in terms of high rate competence, flexible battery structures, long cycling life, and high specific capacity, due to their outstanding characteristics such as high charge carrier mobility, excellent mechanical strength, high theoretical ability, high electronic conductivity, and large surface area. This chapter summarizes the important advancement accomplished on NASICON-based electrodes for application in SIBs, including both cathodes and anodes over the past decade. Furthermore, this chapter also focuses on the new challenges and commercial demand for SIBs and some perspectives on the use of NASICON-based electrodes for future SIB applications.
