Abstract

NaxMnO2 (NMO) is treated by a wet chemical method in this paper. The treated NMO can form a copper oxide coating layer, and some of the coating layer can be peeled off, smoothing the surface of particles. Electrochemical measurement shows that treated NMO can maintain 72.6% of its specific capacity after 300 cycles, which is better than the 58.7% specific capacity of untreated NMO materials. Additionally, the ratio of capacity remaining rate can be improved from an initial 87% to 99.5%. So, this wet chemical method is available to smooth the electrode surface and reduce the internal impedance, and thus to effectively improve electrochemical performance during the battery cycle.
