About the book

Recently the production of energy and its storage technologies have been focused more on daily applications. The advances in lithium-ion battery (LIB) technology in recent decades has upgraded the living conditions around the world. LIBs have found use in most electronic devices (e.g., mobile phones, laptops, e-readers, and many other electronic gadgets) and in zero-emission electronic vehicles. Having said this, concerns are on the increase regarding the vanishing renewable energy sources and sustainability of lithium sources due to their limited availability and an expected hike in the price. Therefore, there is uncertainty about whether LIBs could meet the increasing demand for small and mid-to-large energy storage applications. To overcome these issues, research has taken a step forward by focusing on alternative energy storage sources. Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs), due to their low cost, environment friendliness, high abundance of sodium, similar chemistry to LIBs and an established electrochemical process, are considered the best alternative power sources. Different materials have been devised for cathode (e.g, transition metal oxides, phosphates, and organic compounds), an anode (e.g, carbonaceous materials, transition metal oxides (or sulfides), and intermetallic and organic compounds), electrolytes, additives, and binders. In this book, we aim to discuss the current research on these materials and recommend the future course for SIBs. This book will have significance not only to the senior researchers but all also provide an insight into scientific and practical issues of the development of SIB to the fresh researchers.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Gordan Tot

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
