Silicene: A Promising Anode for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Silicene, a single-layer-thick silicon nanosheet with a honeycomb structure, is successfully fabricated by the molecular-beam-epitaxy (MBE) deposition method on metallic substrates and by the solid-state reaction method. Here, recent progress on the features of silicene that make it a prospective anode for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are discussed, including its charge-carrier mobility, chemical stability, and metal-silicene interactions. The electrochemical performance of silicene is reviewed in terms of both theoretical predictions and experimental measurements, and finally, its challenges and outlook are considered.
