A Quadruple-Hydrogen-Bonded Supramolecular Binder for High-Performance Silicon Anodes in Lithium-Ion Batteries.

With extremely high specific capacity, silicon has attracted enormous interest as a promising anode material for next-generation lithium-ion batteries. However, silicon suffers from a large volume variation during charge/discharge cycles, which leads to the pulverization of the silicon and subsequent separation from the conductive additives, eventually… CONTINUE READING
