Sodium-Ion Battery Electrolytes: Modeling and Simulations
Reviewartikel, 2018

The authors review the efforts made from a modeling and simulation perspective in order to assist both the fundamental understanding as well as the development of higher performance sodium-ion battery (SIB) electrolytes. Depending on the type of the electrolyte studied, liquid, ionic liquid, polymer, glass, solid-state, etc., the simulation methods applied and the research questions in focus differ, but all contribute to more rational progress. Furthermore, the authors create cases of meta-analysis using literature data. A historical perspective is applied and the focus clearly is on more recent work and novel electrolyte materials. Finally, the authors outline a few prospective areas for where SIB electrolyte simulations can/should be extended for maximum impact in the field.
