Abstract:

With the rapid development of electronic technology and increasing demands of space and charge efficiency, the requirements including small size, light weight, high energy capacity and long cycling life for the performance of batteries are rising increasingly. Lithium-ion battery presents many advantages, such as high energy capacity (per weight and volume), long cycling life, low pollution and working voltage. With the previous literatures mentioned, Si which has the high theoretical capacity is about to become a promising and challengeable electrode material for researchers all over the world. This review outlines means of the enormous evolution of Si anodes for lithium-ion batteries.

Keywords: Lithium ion battery, nanostructure, silicon.
