Abstract

Sodium-ion battery is the most popular alternative to lithium-ion energy storage system due to its low cost and huge abundant resources throughout the world. Although recent literature showed cathode materials for sodium ion battery performs almost equivalent to lithium-ion counterpart but the anode of this sodium-ion battery is in premature state. Here, we introduced free-standing copper telluride (Cu2Te), a new anode materials for sodium-ion battery. For making the electrode we did not use any conductive carbon or current collector which increase the volumetric density as well as reduce the cost of the cell. This metallic Cu2Te alloy exhibited a high reversible capacity of ∼275 mAh g-1 at 50 mA g-1 current density and ∼200 mAh g-1 at higher current density of 100 mA g-1, operating between 0.1 to 2.0 V.
