Development and degradation analysis of novel micro and nanostructured transition metal oxide TMO anodes for aqueous sodium ion batteries. Santanu Mukherjee , University of Louisville Follow. One of the primary motivations driving battery technology research is the need to develop cleaner and more efficient energy storage systems. The portable electronics industry has developed exponentially, especially over the last couple of decades and therefore the importance of efficient electrochemical energy storage systems cannot be overstated. Li-ion batteries have been the predominant rechargeable energy in use, however, they have their own particular drawbacks viz.

They have great potential for revolutionizing the automotive industries as well. Concurrently, rechargeable sodium-ion batteries are also gaining popularity for large-scale grid energy storage in the renewable energy sector. Continuous growth of these industries is creating a great demand for these rechargeable batteries in the market. As a result, there is a great drive among researchers for developing high-performance lithium and sodium ion batteries. This dissertation was focused on developing high-performance anode and cathode materials for lithium and sodium ion batteries.
Developing new approaches to improve the performance of organic electrodes for rechargeable sodium batteries is important. The attractive electrochemical performance combined with the design flexibility of a PTCDA based PI material, offer new possibilities for the development of efficient all-organic sodium ion batteries.

Susith Galle Kankanamge, a fourth-year chemistry graduate student advised by Dr. Daniel Kuroda, for his immense support, guidance, and encouragement. Susith's research projects examine the microscopic structure of battery electrolytes and its relation to macroscopic properties using an array of infrared spectroscopies and theoretical methods. One project describes the structure and dynamics of novel sodium-ion battery electrolytes, which are alternatives for lithium in large scale operations. He also studies lithium-ion battery electrolytes for use in high voltage batteries.
