Interface Promoted Reversible Mg Insertion in Nanostructured Tin-Antimony Alloys.


PMID 26421524

Abstract

An interface promoted approach is developed for guiding the design of stable and high capacity materials for Mg batteries using SnSb alloys as model materials. Experimental and theoretical studies reveal that the SnSb alloy has exceptionally high reversible capacity (420 mA h g(-1)), excellent rate capability, and good cyclic stability for hosting Mg ions due to the stabilization/promotion effects of the interfaces between the multicomponent phases generated during repeated magnesiation-demagnesiation.
