Establishing an analytical toolkit for the optimization of Li-ion battery electrode manufacturing

Published 12 October 2017 | By Malvern Panalytical

The electrodes used in Li-ion batteries have a defining influence on their electrochemical performance and are typically manufactured by coating a metal foil substrate with a multicomponent slurry made up of active electrode particles and conductive additives suspended in a binder solution.

The rheology of this slurry is critical and directly influences its stability, ease of application, and the uniformity of the resulting film/coating. These, in turn, impact key battery performance criteria, such as capacity, power and safety.
