FLEXİBLE and CONDUCTIVE POLYMERS
The block copolymer (PFP-g-PEG) increases the conductivity of the electrolyte active material. The binding increases the flexibility of the copolymer when used in the electrodes of lithium batteries.
Gel-Binders for High-Capacity Silicon Anode
Polymeric gel network binders are used in the silicon anode materials of new generation Li-ion batteries due to their high porosity and complexing characteristics with the active material
- C-dots show superior lithium storage performance over graphite, which is associated with a combination of excellent conductivity, fast ion transfer, strong quantum confinement, and edge effects as the anode material.
- C-dots have a hemispherical functional structure with easy storage and transport channels for lithium ions.
- C-dots provide a controlled uniform deposition of Li metal and prevent uncontrolled structural degradation in the volume expansion of silicon.
