DOI: 10.1002/eem2.12131


Pseudocapacitive material development is a promising approach toward realizing high-rate sodium-ion storage, through either surface redox pseudocapacitance or intercalation pseudocapacitance. This review describes the fundamental mechanisms and electrochemical features of various vanadium-based electrode materials which exhibit pseudocapacitive sodium‐ion storage. In particular, areas for further research are identified and a perspective on the future of high-power sodium‐ion device applications is provided.

DOI: 10.1002/eem2.12124


Computational modeling methods can effectively be used to obtain molecular scale local information or provide clear explanations for novel experimental findings that cannot be directly interpreted through experimental investigations. This review is dedicated to emphasizing recent advances in computational simulation methods for exploring the charge storage mechanisms. These computational insights would be helpful to provide theoretical guidance and experimental basis for the design of high‐performance electrochemical energy storage device.

DOI: 10.1002/eem2.12096


Prussian blue and its analogues (PB/PBAs) are simple coordination polymers with tunable chemical compositions and open framework. Prussian blue can act as electrode materials in its pristine form and has also been utilized to derive various metallic nanostructures for electrochemical applications due to their simple fabrication process, non-toxic characteristics, and low price. PB/PBAs and their derivatives are promising and widely used electrode materials for supercapacitors.
