Abstract: In the article, the Archer Group reports an approach for stabilizing sodium metal anodes using poly-ionic liquid films grown in-situ on the anode. By means of electrochemical and direct visualization studies, the authors show that the poly-IL membranes stabilize Na against dendrite formation by limiting side reactions with electrolyte, without compromising interfacial Na ion transport.
