Application: Method of preparing lithium-friendly colloid paint, lithium-friendly colloid paint and lithium metal battery negative electrode (Patent ID: US20240084148A1)

The patent application by Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd describes a method for preparing lithium-friendly colloid paint using nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes. The process involves functionalizing carbon nanotubes, dispersing them in a solution with nitrogen molecules, heat-treating to obtain nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes, and mixing them with a polymer material colloid and lithium salt. The resulting colloid paint can be used in lithium metal batteries as a negative electrode coating layer, enhancing battery performance.

The method outlined in the patent involves specific steps such as dispersing carbon nanotubes in ammonia water, heat-treating at high temperatures, and using specific organic solvents and dispersants. The resulting colloid paint contains nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes uniformly dispersed in a mixture with a polymer material colloid and lithium salt. This innovative approach aims to improve the performance and efficiency of lithium metal batteries by providing a lithium-friendly coating layer that can enhance the interaction between the battery components, ultimately leading to better battery performance and longevity.
