Influence of Electroless Copper Deposition on the Electrochemical Performance of Si/MCMB
Si-Cu alloys have been prepared by electroless depositions with different process. Si-Cu/MCMB materials have been prepared by carbonization of the mixture of Si-Cu, MCMB and mesophase pitch. The influences of electroless deposition condition and heat-treatment temperature on the anodic performance of Cu-Si/MCMB have been studied. Compared with Si/MCMB, Si-Cu/MCMB has more stable cyclical performance. Furthermore, the Si-Cu/MCMB sample produced by cleaning and then electroless deposition on Si shows the better anodic performance than the Si-Cu/MCMB sample produced by direct electroless deposition on Si, because the former sample has more Cu contents than the latter sample.
