Abstract

Hybrid anode materials consisting of micro-sized silicon (Si) particles interconnected with few-layer graphene (FLG) nanoplatelets and sodium-neutralized poly (acrylic acid) as a binder were evaluated for Li-ion batteries. Hybrid anode materials consisting of micro-sized silicon (Si) particles interconnected with few-layer graphene (FLG) nanoplatelets and sodium-neutralized poly(acrylic acid) as a binder were evaluated for Li-ion batteries. The hybrid film has demonstrated a reversible discharge capacity of ∼1800 mA h g −1 with a capacity retention of 97% after 200 cycles. The superior electrochemical properties of the hybrid anodes are attributed to a durable, hierarchical conductive network formed between Si particles and the multi-scale carbon additives, with enhanced cohesion by the functional polymer binder. Furthermore, improved solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) stability is achieved from the electrolyte additives, due to the formation of a kinetically stable film on the surface of the Si.
