Polyanionic layer compounds as new cathode materials
Mixed-conductive layered materials of the α-NaFeO2 type represent the state of the art in high-performance cathode materials. The layer structure allows, among other things, a high ion mobility with adaptive and flexible (de-)intercalation. By using iron-based, pillared, polyanionic layer compounds, current problems with regard to the availability and / or toxicity of nickel and cobalt as well as the risk of thermal run-away are to be taken into account.
