The paper, “Tailored organic electrode material compatible with sulfide electrolyte for stable all-solid- state sodium batteries,” is authored by Yan Yao, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering. The primary authors of the paper are two postdoctoral researchers in Yao’s group, Xiaowei Chi and Yanliang Liang.

“It’s gratifying that our paper was selected by the editor to highlight,” Yao said. “In this work we demonstrated an all-solid-state sodium battery using organic electrode materials for the first time.” It appeared in Angewandte Chemie’s issue 10 on March 1.
