Title: An Aqueous Dual-Ion Battery Cathode of Mn 3O 4 via Reversible Insertion of Nitrate

Abstract

We report reversible electrochemical insertion of NO3- into manganese(II, III) oxide (Mn3O4) as a cathode for aqueous dual-ion batteries. Characterization by TGA, FTIR, EDX, XANES, EXAFS, and EQCM collectively provides unequivocal evidence that reversible oxidative NO 3 - insertion takes place inside Mn 3O 4. Ex situ HRTEM and corresponding EDX mapping results suggest that NO 3 - insertion de-crystallizes the structure of Mn 3O 4 Kinetic studies reveal fast migration of NO 3 - in the Mn 3O 4 structure. This finding may open a new direction for novel low-cost aqueous dual-ion batteries.
