Mechanistic insights into sodium storage in hard carbon anodes using local structure probes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Operando 23Na solid-state NMR and pair distribution function analysis experiments provide insights into the structure of hard carbon anodes in sodium-ion batteries. Capacity results from “diamagnetic” sodium ions first adsorbing onto pore surfaces, defects and between expanded layers, before pooling into larger quasi-metallic clusters/expanded carbon sheets at lower voltages.
