Lithium-Ion Battery Incorporating Carbon Nanostructure Materials納米結構碳為負極材料的二次鋰離子電池

At present, graphite is a commonly used negative electrode material in the commercial graphite based second lithium ion batteries. The theoretical graphite carbon can have a specific capacity of 372 mAh/g, corresponding to an intercalation ratio of lithium to carbon 1:6 (LiC6.). However, such capacity cannot catch up with the increasing market demand in the high energy density power supplies for the portable electronics.

In this invention, the capacity of the battery is greatly enhanced by a novel composition of nano-structured carbons as an active material for the negative electrode of secondary lithium ion batteries. The battery has a higher reversible capacity in the range of 400 to 800 mAh/g which can be maintained over a longer cycle lifetime. The carbon nanostructures may be mixed with graphite to improve conductivity. The carbon nanostructures may also be synthesized using an AFI template material followed by calcinations.

The invention can be used in providing high energy supply for portable electronics such as mobile phones, notebook computers and electric vehicles.
