Abstract

Sodium ion batteries (SIBs) have recently attracted considerable attention and are considered as an alternative to lithium ion batteries (LIBs), owing to the cheap price and abundance of sodium resources. However, the commercialization of SIBs has so far been impeded by the low energy density and unstable cycle life of electrodes, especially as cathodes. Although some cathode candidates with a stable cycle life and high energy density have been developed using nanotechnologies, the commercial feasibility is seldom taken into account. This research news article provides an insight into the commercial prospects of existing cathode materials for SIBs in terms of environmental friendliness, manufacturing cost, synthesis methods and electrochemical performance.
