Title: Temperature-dependent Battery Performance of a Na 3V 2(PO 4) 2F 3@MWCNT Cathode and In-situ Heat Generation on Cycling

Abstract

Excellent structural stability, high operating voltage, and high capacity have made Na 3V 2(PO 4) 2F 3 a promising cathode material for sodium-ion batteries. However, high-temperature battery performances and heat generation measurements have not been systematically reported yet. Carbon-coated Na 3V 2(PO 4) 2F 3@MWCNT (multi-walled carbon nanotube) samples are fabricated by a hydrothermal-assisted sol-gel method and the electrochemical performances are evaluated at three different temperatures (25, 45, and 55 °C). Furthermore, the well-crystallized Na 3V 2(PO 4) 2F 3@MWCNT samples exhibit good cycling stability at both low and high temperatures; they deliver an initial discharge capacity of 120–125 mAhg -1 at a 1 C rate with a retention of 53 % capacity after 1,400 cycles with 99 % columbic efficiency. The half-cell delivers a capacity of 100 mAhg -1 even at a high rate of 10 C at room temperature. Furthermore, the Na 3V 2(PO 4) 2F 3@MWCNT samples show good long-term durability; the capacity loss is an average of 0.05 % per cycle at a 1 C rate at 55 °C. Additionally, ionic diffusivity and charge transfer resistance are evaluated as functions of state of charge, and they explain the high electrochemical performance of the Na 3V 2(POmore » 4) 2F 3@MWCNT samples. In-situ heat generation measurements reveal reversible results upon cycling owing to the high structural stability of the material. Excellent electrochemical performances are also demonstrated in the full-cell configuration with hard carbon as well as antimony Sb/C anodes.« less
