Researchers Developing Improved Lithium-Ion Battery Through Use Of Silicon Gel.

Engineering News (12/4, Smrcka) reports, “Researchers at the Institute for Chemistry and Technology of Materials have developed a new method that uses silicon for lithium-ion batteries. The storage capacity is ten times higher than the graphite substrate that has been used until now, and promises considerable improvements for users.” To make it, “researchers use a silicon-containing gel and apply it to the graphite substrate material.” And “as silicon has a lithium-ion storage capacity some ten times higher than the hitherto commercially used graphite, the new material can store more than double the quantity of lithium ions without changes to the battery’s life.”
