The batteries being portable and light weight find extensive application in portable electronics goods such as laptops, cell phones, digital cameras. There are essentially three functional components of Li – ion batteries namely cathode, anode and electrolyte. During the discharging of lithium – ion battery the lithium is extracted from the anode material and inserted into the cathode and the reverse occurs during the charging. The chemical reactions taking place inside the Li – ion batteries wherein the cathode material is LiCoO2 are as follows: Positive Electrode: LiCoO2 ↔ Li1-x CoO2 + xLi+ + xe- Negative Electrode: C + xLi+ + xe- ↔ CLix Cathode and Anode Materials The anode materials currently being used in the industry are materials having high carbon content. Below is a list of four such Lithium based oxides. |Anode Material |Average Voltage |Gravimetric Capacity
