Title:
Carbon dioxide assist for non-aqueous sodium–oxygen batteries

Abstract:
We report a novel non-aqueous Na-air battery that utilizes a gas mixture of CO2 and O2. The battery exhibits a high specific energy of 6500-7000 Whkg- 1 (based on the carbon mass) over a range of CO2 feed compositions. The energy density achieved is higher, by 200% to 300%, than that obtained in pure oxygen. Ex-situ FTIR and XRD analysis reveal that Na2O2, Na2C2O 4 and Na2CO3 are the principal discharge products. The Na-CO2/O2 and Mg-CO2/O 2 battery platforms provide a promising, new approach for CO 2 capture and generation of electrical energy. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
