Lithium-ion battery technology has always been an aspect that global researchers want to break through, but due to physical and chemical constraints, no relevant materials have been found that can greatly improve the battery’s power. However, people have not given up on the research and development of lithium-ion technology. Not long ago, according to foreign media, the British company Nexeon obtained three sets of key patents, which are silicon materials for the negative electrode of lithium-ion batteries. This is after the acquisition of Litarion GmbH. obtained afterward. There are 24 patents in total, including technologies for the manufacture and use of nano-silicon particles.
This is a new material previously discovered by Nexeon, which has a long life and can always maintain the physical properties of the negative electrode. At present, the application of this material is relatively mature, and different forms of silicon materials are used to replace the previous negative electrode materials. For now, the company has developed two different forms of negative electrodes, NSP-1 and NSP-2. Among them, NSP-1 is a silicon-based composite powder, which can enhance the activity of the negative electrode and increase the battery capacity, which is quite meaningful.
In addition, NSP-2 is a silicon-based material, which can withstand larger loads, which can increase greater energy density and capacity. Not only that, NSP-2 can also slow down material expansion. Therefore, the breakthrough of this material is very helpful for the breakthrough of battery technology.
