Citation: US Patent 7,465,519 B2, 2008
Abstract: A lithium ion battery is disclosed in which the negative electrode material comprises carbon nanostructures having no dimension greater that 2μm. The battery has a high reversible capacity of the order of 400 mAh/g to 5000 mAh/g which can be maintained over a long cycle-life (at least 30 cycles). The carbon nanostructures may be mixed with graphite to improve conductivity. The carbon nanostructures may be synthesized using an AFI template material followed by calcination.
