Preparation and Characterization of High-Power Anode Materials Using Soft Carbon Precursors for Lithium Ion Battery
In order to apply to the high-power anode materials of lithium ion battery, various cokes samples were prepared by milling, pitch coating, and following heat treatment. The samples were milled and the larger particles were removed by sieving. Two types of raw cokes and four pitch coated cokes treated at different temperatures were tested as the anode materials for lithium ion battery, and their electrical performance was compared with the cokes without pitch coating. Although the anode materials prepared with cokes showed lower charge-discharge capacity than the graphite anode materials, their power capability was superior to that of graphite. The electrochemical performance of various anodes with the pitch coated cokes was demonstrated as a function of preparation conditions.
