Abstract / Full Text

In the recent years, attention is focused on phosphorus as the active material for negative electrodes of sodium-ion rechargeable batteries because it demonstrates the maximum theoretical capacity with respect to sodium intercalation. The studies published since 2013 on sodium intercalation into red phorphorus, black phosphorus, and phosphorenes and also in phosphides of certain elements are considered.
