Carbon-based silicon nanohybrid anode materials for rechargeable lithium ion batteries

Sitinamaluwa, Hansinee and Zhang, Shanqing and Senadeera, Wijitha and Will, Geoffrey and Yan, Cheng (2016) Carbon-based silicon nanohybrid anode materials for rechargeable lithium ion batteries. Materials Technology, 31 (14). pp. 872-883. ISSN 1066-7857


Silicon has demonstrated great potential as anode materials for next-generation high-energy density rechargeable lithium ion batteries. However, its poor mechanical integrity needs to be improved to achieve the required cycling stability. Nano-structured silicon has been used to prevent the mechanical failure caused by large volume expansion of silicon. Unfortunately, pristine silicon nanostructures still suffer from quick capacity decay due to several reasons, such as formation of solid electrolyte interphase, poor electrical contact and agglomeration of nanostructures. Recently, increasing attention has been paid to exploring the possibilities of hybridization with carbonaceous nanostructures to solve these problems. In this review, the recent advances in the design of carbon-silicon nanohybrid anodes and existing challenges for the development of high-performance lithium battery anodes are briefly discussed.
