OCTOBER 24, 2012
Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a nanocomposite material of amorphous, porous FePO 4 nanoparticles electrically wired by single-wall carbon nanotubes as a potential cathode material for sodium-ion batteries (SIBs). With a simple synthetic procedure, cost-effective chemicals, and desirable cell performance, the method offers a promising candidate for commercialized cathode materials of SIBs, the researchers suggest in a paper in the ACS journal Nano Letters.
