Abstract

A liquid Na-K alloy is adsorbed onto a super-aligned carbon nanotube membrane (denoted CM) at room temperature, which is driven by capillary force, fabricating a flexible CM@NaK membrane. The anode directly using the CM@NaK membrane exhibits a smooth electrode-electrolyte (liquid-liquid) interface, contributing to fast ion transport and a dendrite-free stripping/plating process.
