Silicon is the most promising electrode material for next-generation lithium-ion batteries

U.S. natural gas futures rose about 5 percent to a near nine-week high as global energy prices surged on concerns over a pricing plan for energy exports, keeping U.S. LNG export demand near record highs. U.S. natural gas prices have risen despite forecasts of mild weather and lower-than-expected demand, which will allow utilities to fill up storage facilities next week. On Wednesday, Germany launched an emergency plan to manage gas supplies in Europe's largest economy. If natural gas supplies are interrupted or stopped, the German government could take unprecedented steps to limit electricity supply.
Affected by the increase in the price of natural gas, the price of the Nano silicon anode material silicon powder will also increase.

Overview of nano silicon anode material silicon powder

Silicon is the most promising electrode material for next-generation lithium-ion batteries, with a specific capacity (3600 mAh/g) about 10 times higher than graphite (372 mAh/g). However, due to the significant expansion (over 300%) of the material under load (lithiation) and the instability of the solid electrolyte interface layer (SEI), its use is severely restricted. The poor mechanical stability and chemical passivation performance of silicon electrodes make the cycle performance of silicon electrodes far unable to meet the requirements of battery systems, and a lot of research and suggestions have been stimulated to circumvent these limitations.


During the lithium insertion process, the volume of silicon changes so much (about 400%) that the silicon cracks and falls off the collector, causing the prototype lithium-silicon battery to lose most of its capacity in less than 10 charge and discharge cycles. The key to the success of large-capacity lithium-ion batteries is to solve the capacity and stability problems of lithium-ion silicon.

Silicon anode materials have shown great potential in improving the efficiency and energy storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries. Until recently, their main disadvantage was surface passivation through oxidation, a process that increases impedance and reduces anode circularity. Our high-purity silicon anode materials can achieve high specific capacity without significantly affecting cycle life.

Nano silicon anode material silicon powder application

Silicon is the most promising anode material in the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. Nano silicon anode materials are used in cylindrical, flexible and aluminum shell batteries. Our silicon anode powder can be dispersed in the battery solvent while preventing agglomeration. They are designed to bond seamlessly with other battery materials and produce uniform and stable coatings. Therefore, they are suitable for a range of applications, including lithium-ion batteries, photovoltaics, semiconductors, and electronics.

Since the beginning of this year, China's macro policies have made continuous efforts to stabilize economic growth. America and Europe are raising interest rates to control inflation. On March the European Central Bank left its three key interest rates unchanged and began to scale back its asset-purchase programme. Then the Federal Reserve raised the target range of the federal funds rate by 25 basis points to 0.25%-0.5%. The accelerated tightening of monetary policies in the US and Europe pushed capital back to the US and increased interest rates, which will definitely increase the risk of RMB depreciation and capital outflow. The price and market of the Nano silicon anode material silicon powder will also be affected, resulting in a range of fluctuations.
