Sodium layered oxides, NaxMO2 (M = Ti – Cu), show great promises as positive electrode material candidates for Na-ion batteries. However, detailed structural analysis of these materials presents many difficulties owing to their reactivity in ambient conditions, numerous structural transitions as a function of the sodium content and extended stacking fault occasionally resulting in partial amorphization of the sample.

This webinar will cover the study of P2-NaxFe1/2Mn1/2O2 positive electrode material focusing on the powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) data collection strategies used to address the challenges inherent to sodium layered oxide in general.
