Abstract
Si swarf is generated during slicing Si ingots to produce Si wafers for solar cells. The weight of Si swarf, i.e., industrial waste, is nearly the same as that of Si wafers. Si swarf and Si nanopowder produced by the ball and beads milling methods possesses flakelike shape with length smaller than a few μm and thickness thinner than 40 nm. We have applied Si nanopowder produced from swarf to Li ion batteries, fluorescent materials, a hydrogen generation material, and solar cells. In this study, Si has been applied to high capacity active materials for anodes in Li ion batteries. Si nanoparticles smaller than 150 nm are known to show good cyclability; while for larger Si particles, peeling-off of Si due to their volume change occurs during lithiation and delithiation, resulting in degradation of the cyclability. Si swarf is a promising low-cost material for mass production of Si anodes, while Si nanoparticles have been fabricated so far using high-cost processes such as CVD and laser ablation. Cyclability of a Si anode fabricated from Si swarf is improved by addition of 10-15 wt% fluoroethylene carbonate (FEC) to ethylene carbonate (EC)/diethylene carbonate (DEC)=1/1 electrolyte solutions with 1 M LiPF6. The solutions form a thin and stable solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) layer, leading to decreases in the SEI resistance (RSEI) and charge transfer resistance (Rct). Carbon-coating (C-coating) on Si also improves the cyclability of the Si anode. Limitation of the delithiation capacity at 1500 mA h/g after deep lithiation at 0.01 V with a Li foil counter electrode also shows better cyclability than that for limitation of the lithiation capacity at 1500 mA h/g after deep delithiation at 1.5 V.
