Na-ion battery is a challenging technology to replace Li-ion battery as it is cost competitve and may allow better cycle life. Sodium has also similar property to Lithium (light and electronegative element).
The eletrochemistry of the sodium is somewhat different of lithium with much less studies reported in the litterature.
The work will consist in the elaboration and characterization of promising electrode materials for Na-ion batteries.
