About the book
Because sodium is abundant in nature compared to lithium and cost-effective, Li-ion batteries are being replaced by Na-ion batteries. However, the ability of battery components to improve battery performance is still the biggest problem. Also, sodium has a larger atomic radius than lithium, it has inevitably limited its practical applications, created problems of low electrochemical reaction kinetics, and reduced cyclic stability for sodium-ion batteries. Although the design of new materials, the porosity, and 3D-printing of electrodes with applying structural engineering/modification and especially the solid-state production of electrolyte provide serious benefits to improve the Na-ion battery performance, it can still be said that it doesn’t give the desired outcome.
This book aims to provide the most up-to-date and latest approaches to solving these problems, as well as to provide new solutions that may come across in the coming period. The systematic presentation of the roles and effects of effective strategies will also make the study interesting.
