Sn0.9Cu0.1 nanoparticles were synthesized via a surfactant-assisted wet chemistry method, which were then investigated as an anode material for ambient temperature rechargeable sodium ion batteries. The Sn0.9Cu0.1 nanoparticle-based electrodes exhibited a stable capacity of greater than 420 mA h g(-1) at 0.2 C rate, retaining 97% of their maximum observed capacity after 100 cycles of sodium insertion/deinsertion. Their performance is considerably superior to electrodes made with either Sn nanoparticles or Sn microparticles.
