摘要

This study proposes a conformal surface coating of conducting polymer for protecting 1D nanostructured electrode material, thereby enabling a free-standing electrode without binder for sodium ion batteries. Here, polypyrrole (PPy), which is one of the representative conducting polymers, encapsulated cobalt phosphide (CoP) nanowires (NWs) grown on carbon paper (CP), finally realizes 1D core–shell CoP@PPy NWs/CP. The CoP core is connected to the PPy shell via strong chemical bonding, which can maintain a Co–PPy framework during charge/discharge. It also possesses bifunctional features that enhances the charge transfer and buffers the volume expansion. Consequently, 1D core–shell CoP@PPy NWs/CP demonstrates superb electrochemical performance, delivering a high areal capacity of 0.521 mA h cm−2 at 0.15 mA cm−2 after 100 cycles, and 0.443 mA h cm−2 at 1.5 mA cm−2 even after 1000 cycles. Even at a high current density of 3 mA cm−2, a significant areal discharge capacity reaching 0.285 mA h cm−2 is still maintained. The outstanding performance of the CoP@PPy NWs/CP free-standing anode provides not only a novel insight into the modulated volume expansion of anode materials but also one of the most effective strategies for binder-free and free-standing electrodes with decent mechanical endurance for future secondary batteries.
