A new class of Na2MnSiO4/carbon/graphene (Na2MnSiO4/C/G) composite is successfully prepared and investigated for use as a cathode material for Na ion batteries. X-ray diffraction confirms that formation of a monoclinic structure with Pn space group. Morphological characterization shows that Na2MnSiO4 nanoparticles, about 30–40 nm in size with high density, are homogeneously anchored on the whole surface of the crumpled micrometer-size graphene nanosheets. The sodium insertion–extraction process… CONTINUE READING
