SUEP Professor Liu Haimei Makes Important Progress in Research of New Energy Materials

Professor Liu Haimei who is from Shanghai Key Laboratory of Materials Protection and Advanced Materials in Electric Power has made important progress in the research of anode materials for sodium ion batteries. The research results were published in Advanced Functional Materials (SCI Q1; influence factor: 13.325; DOI: 10.1002 / adfm. 201900535) with the title of “Creating an Air-Stable Sulfur-Doped Black Phosphorus-TiO2 Composite as High-Performance Anode Material for Sodium-Ion Storage”. The first author of the paper is Song Tianbing, a graduate instructed by Professor Liu, majoring in Materials Chemistry from the College of Environmental and Chemical Engineering.

With the advantages of low cost, long life, environmental protection and high energy density, sodium ion batteries have become a research focus in recent years on the problem of how to meet the requirements of large energy storage systems. In order to promote the practical application of the batteries, it’s essential to develop a high-performance electrode materials.

The research group led by Professor Liu Haimei created the anode material for sodium ion storage (TiO2-BP-S) with oxidation resistance and high capacity. This finding provides great guidance for the design and implement of black phosphorus and titanium based materials, and are of important practical significance for the research and development of the mass production of high-performance sodium ion batteries.

The work was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National Key Research and Development Program, Science and Technology Committee of Shanghai, and Shanghai Key Laboratory of Materials Protection and Advanced Materials in Electric Power.
