Room temperature solvent-free reduction of SiCl4 to nano-Si for high-performance Li-ion batteries

Abstract

SiCl4 can be directly reduced to nano-Si with commercial Na metal in solvent-free condition by mechanical milling. Crystalline nano-Si with average size of 25 nm and quite uniform size distribution can be obtained, which shows excellent lithium storage performance, featured for a high reversible capacity of 1600 mAh g-1 after 500 cycles at 2.1 A g-1.
