Natural graphite is separated from artificial graphite. Graphite is an ideal anode for lithium-ion batteries because of its low lithium cost and high efficiency.
Analyse of natural graphite
Natural flake graphite can be used to make natural graphite. It is then modified to produce spherical natural Graphite. Although natural graphite has many advantages, there are some drawbacks to it.
Natural graphite exhibits many defects on the surface, large surface areas and low efficiency.
PC-based electrolytes can cause serious problems such as solvated lithium Ion co-embedding. This leads to graphite peeling and expansion, and ultimately, battery failure.
The anisotropy of natural graphite means that lithium ion is difficult to embed from the end faces. It also makes it easy for lithium ions to be precipitated. With the exception of some surface defects, artificial graphite generally contains dense petroleum coke, needle coke, and other precursors. However, there are still problems such as poor magnification performance at low temperatures, weak separation performance of lithium and poor magnification.
Modifications to natural graphite
Different surfactants were applied to the graphite to fix its surface imperfections and toler electrolyte well.
To improve magnification of natural graphite, the first step is to modify the pore structure. After etching with strong alkali (KOH), the solution in an aqueous solution has been applied to the graphite.
You can also use strong oxidant solution to passivate surface active potential. This will increase natural graphite’s efficiency.
Third, fluorinate natural graphite by using ClF3. Effectively, the cycle life and charge/discharge ratio are improved.
The amorphous graphite can also be coated to form “coreshell” structures. The carbon source for amorphous Carbon is typically pitch, phenolic or other low-temperaturepyrolytic carbon materials. Because of the long distance between carbon layers, the presence of a carbon coating can reduce interfacial impedance and isolate electrolyte from the particles. Enhance the intercalation or diffusion of lithiumion.
To solve the anisotropy problem in natural graphite, mechanical treatments are often employed to shape the particle morphology. An air flow shaping device uses wind to create particles that rub against each others and to cut corners. The method doesn’t introduce any doping impurities. It has high efficiency and will result in the pulverization a large amount of particles with low yield.
Mechanical fusion machines use the material to spin at high speeds in a rotor. The material clings on to the wall with the help of centrifugal force and then passes between the stator extrusionhead and the rotor at high velocity. This is when the material will be subject to extrusion force and shear pressure. To achieve the goal of spheroidization, the surface is subject to the friction between particles and other particles.
Natural graphite’s particle sizes are reduced to 15-20 mm after the spheroidization process. The first efficiency and performance of the cycles is clearly improved. Magnification performances can also be greatly enhanced.
Modifications to Artificial Graphite
Modifications of artificial graphite. The modification process of artificial graphite has a different structure than that of natural graphite. The organization of particles can reduce graphite’s OI value (position degree) generally. A needle coke precursor of 8-10mm in diameter is chosen. The carbon source for the binder is typically made from easily graphitized materials like asphalt. A number of needle coke particles can be bonded using drum furnace treatment. The secondary particles, with a size of 14-18mm, are then made into graphitization. This will help to reduce the Oi.
