What is it about?

An organic salt is introduced which can be utilized as anode material for Na-ion battery with low yet safe operating voltage. Along with the introduction of a new molecule, a significantly different mechanism of Na-ion storage is communicated in this report.

Why is it important?

A unique mechanism reported in this report can help expand the avenues for discovering novel organic redox-active materials. This material possess high energy as well, which makes it attractive as well.


It was an exciting as well as challenging material to study. I had the privilege of good guidance from Dr. Harihara Padhy. It was also my first work on organic anode material which helped me learn a lot, specifically due to the unique nature of Na-storage in this material.
