Title: Synthesis and Characterization of 2 × 4 Tunnel Structured Manganese Dioxides as Cathodes in Rechargeable Li, Na, and Mg Batteries

Abstract

Sodium containing 2 × 4 (0.46nm × 0.92nm) tunnel structured manganese dioxide (Na-2 × 4-MnO 2) nanofibers are hydrothermally synthesized here. The nanofibrous Na-2 × 4-MnO 2 was thoroughly characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), N2 sorption, and electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) and is assigned a formula of Na 0.25MnO 2.0.16H 2O. The electrochemistry of Na-2 × 4-MnO 2 in non-aqueous Li, Na and Mg batteries is compared for the first time and first cycle delivered capacities were found to be 152mAh/g, 86mAh/g, and 307mAh/g, respectively. Characterization of the active material after electrochemical tests demonstrated that Na-2 × 4-MnO 2 preserved both its crystallographic structure and nanofibrous morphology after cycling in Na and Li cells, however, Na-2 × 4-MnO 2 lost its crystalline structure after cycling in a Mg based system.
