The Future of High Performance, Low-Cost
Lithium-Ion Battery Anodes
X-MAT Technology Improves Battery Performance
How does X-MAT® increase lithium-ion battery performance?
The current lithium-ion battery anode is made of graphite, a particular form of ordered carbon. Many researchers have used silicon-based materials (nanoparticles, coatings, cages, grids, etc.) to improve the performance of lithium-ion battery anodes. However, each of these solutions has detriments such as lower cycle life and/or higher costs. Instead of mixing silicon and carbon in discrete particles or structures, X-MAT® combines silicon and carbon at the molecular level to improve overall battery performance.
Early results show a 3X specific capacity (mAh/g) improvement for some graphite formulations and a 4X specific capacity improvement for some original X-MAT® formulations.
