- Exploring new anode materials with promising electrochemical capacity is essential for rechargeable sodium-ion batteries. The selection and structural design of electrode materials play key role in the development of a viable battery with high specific capacity and cycle retention. Herein, self-assembled NiCo2O4 microspheres comprised of numerous sub-micron sized rods are prepared for the first time by a simple co-precipitation method. The synthesized microspheres have homogeneous morphology and a multimodal porosity. The resulting sodium ion storage properties demonstrate that the NiCo2O4 microsphere anode offers excellent electrochemical performance, with a high reversible capacity of 620 mAh g− 1 at a current density of 0.05 A g− 1. It also shows an exceptionally high rate capability up to 10 A g− 1 equivalent to 11 C-rate, which can be attributed to the existence of capacitive behavior. Notably, the rate performance and cycling stability are significantly higher than most previously reported results of NiCo2O4 nanostructures for sodium-ion batteries (SIBs).
