Investigation of lithium storage capability of silicon nanopowders

Project Member(s): Mahmood, A.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Kinaltek Pty Ltd (Kinaltek silicon-based anode performance project)
Kinaltek Pty Ltd (Kinaltek silicon-based anode performance project)

Start year: 2022

Summary: This project is designed to work with industrial partner to investigate the performance of silicon-based anode materials. We will work with unique silicon nanostructures that may have very high lithium storage capability and therefore has strong potential for commercialization. The project will investigate the electrochemical properties of the silicon materials and provide support for commercialization of the silicon materials as anode material for commercial lithium batteries.
