Abstract

The monoclinic phase of Na4Ti5O12 (M-Na4Ti5O12) has been investigated as a potential sodium-ion battery anode material. In contrast to the previously investigated trigonal phase (T-Na4Ti5O12), M-Na4Ti5O12 has continuous two-dimensional (2D) channels with partially occupied Na sites, providing broader pathways and more space for the intercalation of excess sodium. Electrochemical measurements show that it exhibits a comparable or higher reversible capacity than T-Na4Ti5O12. Neutron powder diffraction reveals the preferred sites and occupancies of the excess sodium. In situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction under electrochemical cycling shows that the crystal lattice undergoes strongly anisotropic volume changes during cycling.
