  • The high temperature Na/Na/sub 5/ErSi/sub 4/O/sub 12//TiS/sub 2/ cell has been constructed and its electrochemical properties have been investigated. At 125/degree/C, the open-circuit voltage of this cell is 2.10 v. Primary discharge studies indicate that the minimum Na/sup +/ conductivity of the Na/sub 5/ErSi/sub 4/O/sub 12/ is 0.002 /OMEGA//sup -1/ cm/sup -1/ at this temperature, so that the rate of charge transport within the cell appears to be controlled by the rate of Na/sup +/ diffusion within the TiS/sub 2/. A mathematical model has been developed which predicts the current-time behavior for this kind of cell operating under alkali metalmore » ion diffusion control within the positive plate material. 17 refs.« less
  • A thorough study was made concerning the formation of LiNiO{sub 2} by a low-temperature ion-exchange reaction under hydrothermal conditions. LiNiO{sub 2} with a low degree of cationic mixing and good electrochemical performance was prepared either from pure {beta}-NiOOH, {gamma}-NiOOH, or a mixture of both where the {gamma} phase was the majority. The synthesized product (LT-LiNiO{sub 2}) presents electrochemical properties similar to LiNiO{sub 2} prepared by conventional powder synthesis (HT-LiNiO{sub 2}) in spite of the difference in Brunauer, Emmett, and Teller (BET) surfaces, around 20 m{sup 2}/g for LT-LiNiO{sub 2} and 0.7 m{sup 2}/g for HT-LiNiO{sub 2}. This moisture instability wasmore » found (1) to be intrinsic to LiNiO{sub 2}, since ground HT-LiNiO{sub 2} samples presented a similar behavior, (2) to be enhanced by decreasing the LiNiO{sub 2} particle size, and (3) to be much larger than that of LiCoO{sub 2}. In view of electrochemical applications, cobalt-substituted products should be used in order to ensure the stability against both reduction-delithiation and hydrolysis.« less
  • Nanorods of Na{sub 0.44}MnO{sub 2} are a promising cathode material for Na-ion batteries due to their large surface area and single crystalline structure. We report the growth mechanism of Na{sub 0.44}MnO{sub 2} nanorods via solid state synthesis and their physical properties. The structure and the morphology of the Na{sub 0.44}MnO{sub 2} nanorods are investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning and tunneling electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), and energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) techniques. The growth mechanism of the rods is investigated and the effects of vapor pressure and partial melting of Na-rich regions are discussed. The magnetic measurements show an antiferromagnetic phasemore » transition at 25 K and the μ{sub eff} is determined as 3.41 and 3.24 μ{sub B} from the χ–T curve and theoretical calculation, respectively. The electronic configuration and spin state of Mn{sup 3+} and Mn{sup 4+} are discussed in detail. The electrochemical properties of the cell fabricated using the nanorods are investigated and the peaks in the voltammogram are attributed to the diffusion of Na ions from different sites. Na intercalation process is explained by one and two Margules and van Laar models. - Highlights: • We synthesized Na{sub 0.44}MnO{sub 2} nanorods via a simple solid state reaction technique. • Our studies show that excess Na plays a crucial role in the nanorod formation. • Magnetization measurements show that Mn{sup 3+} ions are in LS and HS states. • The electrochemical properties of the cell fabricated using the nanorods are investigated. • Na intercalation process is explained by one and two Margules and van Laar models.« less
  • An increase in the NaOH concentration in the NaOH-TiO{sub 2} (rutile)-H{sub 2}O system at a temperature of 500 deg. C and a pressure of 0.1 GPa leads to the crystallization R-TiO{sub 2} + Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} {sup {yields}} Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} {sup {yields}} Na{sub 16}Ti{sub 10}O{sub 28}. Crystals of the Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} titanate (space group C2/m) have the three-dimensional framework structure Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13}. The structure of the Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} titanate (space group P2{sub 1}/m) contains the two-dimensional layers Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7}. The structure of the Na{sub 16}Ti{sub 10}O{sub 28} titanate (space group P-1)more » is composed of the isolated ten-polyhedron cluster precursors Ti{sub 10}O{sub 28}. In all the structures, the titanium atoms have an octahedral coordination (MTiO{sub 6}). The matrix self-assembly of the Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} and Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} (Na{sub 4}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 14}) crystal structures from Na{sub 4}M{sub 12} invariant precursors is modeled. These precursors are clusters consisting of twelve M polyhedra linked through the edges. It is demonstrated that the structurally rigid precursors Na{sub 4}M{sub 12} control all processes of the subsequent evolution of the crystal-forming titanate clusters. The specific features of the self-assembly of the Na{sub 2}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 7} structure that result from the additional incorporation of twice the number of sodium atoms into the composition of the high-level clusters are considered.« less
