Sodium-ion batteries are likely to be the next-generation power sources. They offer higher safety than lithium-ion batteries and, most important, sodium is available in unlimited abundance. The book covers the fundamental principles and applications of these batteries and reports experimental work on the use of electrolytes and different electrode materials, such as silicon, carbon, conducting polymers, and Mn- and Sn-based materials. Also discussed are state-of-the-art, future prospects and challenges in sodium-ion battery technology.
