PI:KEM – NEW: Sodium Materials for Energy R+D

Battery Tech

Updated on:

Due to sodium’s abundance within the earth’s crust, Na-ion battery technology is a new and fast-growing Energy Research area.

Following the increase in demand, we have all the materials, chemicals, components and equipment you need to help accelerate your Na-ion battery research:

  • Sodium discs & foils
    • Our discs are pre-cut to size for ease of use within coin cell research, whilst the foil can be cut to size for use in pouch or cylinder cell R&D
  • Anode & cathode powders
    • Our sodium-ion cathode materials are typically based on intercalation / de-intercalation compounds, where sodium ions provided by the cathode are inserted into the host lattice (anode) during charge and extracted during discharge, with minimal structural change in the host material
  • Pre-Coated electrode sheets
    • Our sodium-ion cathode and anode powders can also be cast as electrode sheets
  • Electrolytes
    • Our electrolytes have been specifically formulated for na-ion battery research.
  • Coin / pouch / cylinder cell consumables & equipment
    • We provide an extensive choice of equipment for battery and supercapacitor research. This ranges from cost-effective manual and semi-automatic equipment, designed for use in benchtop research, through to automated and high throughput systems for large laboratory research and prototype testing.
