Application Note: Establishing an Analytical Toolkit for the Optimization of Li-ion Battery Electrode Manufacturing
20 October 2017
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. This whitepaper considers the factors affecting the properties of dispersions such as battery slurries, with a particular emphasis on rheology. A key focus is the identification of analytical techniques that support the optimization of battery slurry properties and electrode manufacture – how they work and the application and value of the data they generate.
