SWeNT to Discuss Effectiveness of its Carbon Nanotubes in Lithium-Ion Batteries

At the 2012 Nanotech Conference and Expo, SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT)’s Director of Research and Development, Ricardo Prada Silvy will deliver a presentation entitled, ‘Specialty Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes for Advanced Li-ion Battery Cathodes.’
In the presentation, Prada Silvy will describe the latest developments in the SWeNT carbon nanotubes’ efficacy in lithium-ion batteries. SWeNT’s specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes demonstrate easier dispersion and superior electrical conductivity when compared to other multi-wall carbon nanotubes in commercial quantities.

Prada Silvy informed that the company is happy about the research results according to which 1% wt of SWeNT specialty multi-walled carbon nanotubes are capable of substituting 6% wt typical conductive carbon-P used in the current formulation of lithium-ion battery cathodes, thus providing enhanced performance in rate capability, improved specific energy, augmented cycle life, and minimal impedance in high power electrodes. Optimal control over the carbon nanotube structure, which includes lower structural defects, less number of walls, higher aspect ratio and morphology, and high purity levels are the basis of these performance properties.
