The development of renewable energy sources has attracted the attention of researchers. Energy storage techniques of flexible production and demand on batteries based on electrochemistry have been explored during past decades. However, the state-of-the-art developments have been impeded due to the lack of sustainable cell component materials. One way to improve the energy density is through the solid ion exchange membrane, called sodium super ionic conductor (NaSICON). The fundamental challenges in synthesizing high purity NaSICON/polymer membrane lies in achievable of porous sintered body and polymer infiltration. In this study, we demonstrate, that NaSICON/polymer membranes thinner than 50Ám can be manufactured through one-step synthesis, sintering and followed by polymer infiltration. The sintering condition as well as the polymer infiltration technique of NaSICON/polymer membrane will be discussed.
