ACS Appl Mater Interfaces. 2016 Dec 29. doi: 10.1021/acsami.6b12529. [Epub ahead of print]Currently sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) as energy storage technology have attracted lots of interest due to their safe, cost-effective and non-poisonous advantages. However, many challenges are remained for development of SIBs with high specific capacity, high rate capability and long cycle life. Therefore, CuS as an important earth-abundant, low-cost semiconductor was applied as anode of SIBs with ether-based electrolyte instead of conventional ester-based electrolyte. Read More
