The Sodium-ion battery is a promising technology for electric vehicles. Reliance Industries aims to tap into this growing market with its extensive reach.
A sodium ion battery is a rechargeable battery that uses sodium ions as the charge-carrying particles. Sodium ion batteries are similar to lithium-ion batteries in many ways, but they have advantages over their lithium counterparts.
A sodium ion battery cell is made up of a cathode (sodium-containing substance), an anode (which is not always a sodium-containing substance), and a liquid electrolyte of dissolved sodium salts in protic or aprotic solvents. While charging, sodium ions are derived from the cathode and introduced into the anode even as electrons flow through the open circuit; during discharging, the sodium ions are derived from the anode and re-introduced into the cathode while electrons flow through the open circuit.
