Title: Silver-Containing α-MnO2 Nanorods: Electrochemistry in Na-Based Battery Systems

Abstract

Manganese oxides are considered attractive cathode materials for rechargeable batteries due to the high abundance and environmental friendliness of manganese. In particular, cryptomelane and hollandite are desirable due to their ability to host cations within their octahedral molecular sieve (OMS-2) Alpha-MnO2 structure. In this work, we investigate silver containing Alpha-MnO2 structured materials (AgxMn8O16, x = 1.22, L-Ag-OMS-2 or 1.66, H-Ag-OMS-2) as host materials for Li ion and Na ion insertion/de-insertion. The results indicate a significant difference in the lithiation versus sodiation process the OMS-2 materials. Initial reduction of Ag1.22Mn8O16 to 1.0 V delivered ~370 mAh/g. Cycling of Ag1.22Mn8O16 between voltage ranges of 3.8 - 1.7 V and 3.8 - 1.3 V in a Na battery delivered initial capacities of 113 and 247 mAh/g, respectively. In contrast, Ag1.66Mn8O16 delivered only 15 mAh/g, ~0.5 electron equivalents, to 1.7 and 1.3 volts. Study of the system by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) showed a significant decrease in charge transfer resistance from 2029 Omega to 594 Omega after 1.5 electron equivalents per Ag1.22Mn8O16 formula unit of Na ion insertion. In contrast, both Ag1.22Mn8O16 and Ag1.66Mn8O16 exhibited gradual impedance increases during lithiation. The formation of silver metal could be detected only in the sodiated material bymore » X-ray diffraction (XRD). Thus, the impedance of Ag-OMS-2 decreases upon sodiation coincident with the formation of silver metal during the discharge process, consistent with the more favorable formation of silver metal during the sodiation process relative to the lithation process.« less
