Automakers Choose Silicon as Key Li-ion Battery Material to Boost Electric Vehicle Performance

Silicon represents 27.7% of the earth’s crust, making it the second most abundant substance after oxygen. This plentiful material is a hard metalloid, and in crystalline form, is characterized by a metallic lustre. Silicon metal‘s stable tetrahedral configuration makes it incredibly useful in a wide range of industries, such as aluminum, where it’s used to strengthen alloys, personalContinue reading “Automakers Choose Silicon as Key Li-ion Battery Material to Boost Electric Vehicle Performance”
