Syntheses, structure and properties of a new Fillowite-type compound Na0.48Mn1.22PO4
Scientists recently synthesized a new Fillowite-type NMPO compound, Na0.48 Mn1.22PO4, by using solid-state reaction. Within the new NMPO system, Mn binds O as a 3D Mn-O-Mn network with the insertion of some Mn5O6. The valence of Mn was confirmed in HPSynC by using the facilities at APS at Argonne National Lab. Further electrochemical tests indicated that the new NMPO compound has great potential in Na-ion battery applications, a low cost and environmental friendly energy storage alternative to Li-ion batteries.More...
