Title: Biphase Cobalt-Manganese Oxide with High Capacity and Rate Performance for Aqueous Sodium-Ion Electrochemical Energy Storage

Abstract

Manganese-based metal oxide electrode materials are of great importance in electrochemical energy storage for their favorable redox behavior, low cost and environmental-friendliness. However, their storage capacity and cycle life in aqueous Na-ion electrolytes is not satisfactory. In this paper, we report the development of a bi-phase cobalt-manganese oxide (Co-Mn-O) nanostructured electrode material, comprised of a layered MnO 2.H 2O birnessite phase and a (Co 0.83Mn 0.13Va 0.04)tetra(Co 0.38Mn 1.62) octaO 3.72 (Va: vacancy; tetra: tetrahedral sites; octa: octahedral sites) spinel phase, verified by neutron total scattering and pair distribution function analyses. The bi-phase Co-Mn-O material demonstrates an excellent storage capacity towards Na-ions in an aqueous electrolyte (121 mA h g -1 at a scan rate of 1 mV s -1 in the half-cell and 81 mA h g -1 at a current density of 2 A g -1 after 5000 cycles in full-cells), as well as high rate performance (57 mA h g -1 a rate of 360 C). Electro-kinetic analysis and in situ X-ray diffraction measurements further confirm that the synergistic interaction between the spinel and layered phases, as well as the vacancy of the tetrahedral sites of spinel phase, contribute to the improved capacity and rate performance ofmore » the Co-Mn-O material by facilitating both diffusion-limited redox and capacitive charge storage processes.« less
