Title: Challenges in Developing Electrodes, Electrolytes, and Diagnostics Tools to Understand and Advance Sodium-Ion Batteries

Abstract

Here, considering the natural abundance and low cost of sodium resources, sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) have received much attention for large-scale electrochemical energy storage. However, smart structure design strategies and good mechanistic understanding are required to enable advanced SIBs with high energy density. In recent years, the exploration of advanced cathode, anode and electrolyte materials as well as advanced diagnostics have been extensively carried out. This review mainly focused on the challenging problems for the attractive battery materials (i.e. cathode, anode and electrolytes) and summarized the latest strategies to improve their electrochemical performance as well as presented recent progress of operando diagnostics to disclose the physic behind the electrochemical performance, and to provide guidance and approaches to design and synthesize advanced battery materials. Outlook and perspectives on the future research to build better SIBs are also provided.
