An artistic rendition of the new sodium-ion battery design, which relies on stacked layers of graphene with molecules sandwiched in between for higher capacity.

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have recently devised a method of using a novel form of the wonder material graphene in sodium-ion batteries, increasing their sustainability and capability, tenfold.

Much like today's lithium-ion, sodium-ion batteries function by generating power by shuttling ions between a pair of electrodes in a liquid electrolyte, yet their perfor...
