Abstract

In this study, we investigate spray pyrolysis as an approach to synthesis of tunnel structure sodium manganese oxide, as it is a cost-effective and scalable technology. The powders synthesized with Na/Mn ratio of 0.50 displayed a pure tunnel structure, and demonstrated the best electrochemical performance, with a discharge capacity of 115 mAh/g. The material also showed good cycleability and rate capability. Noticeable decay in performance was seen in materials with Na/Mn ratios other than 0.50, indicating that this material is sensitive to minor compositional deviations. This study has demonstrated that spray pyrolysis is a promising synthesis method for this material.
