    Special Issue on Sodium Ion Batteries


    Sodium ion batteries that use sodium ions as charge carriers have emerged as a new promising rechargeable battery. Due to the natural abundance, lower cost, and relatively low toxicity of sodium and excellent electrochemical features, sodium ion batteries have become potential alternative for lithium ion batteries. While issues related to performance, weight and instability of materials are to be solved for the commercial realization of the sodium ion batteries.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring sodium ion batteries. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Electrochemical features of sodium ion batteries
    • Design principle of sodium ion battery
    • Assembly technology of sodium ion battery
    • Electrolyte technology of sodium ion batteries
    • Materials of negative electrodes and positive electrodes
    • Application prospect and development trend of sodium ion batteries

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Sodium Ion Batteries” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
