Zenyatta Ventures has announced the successful testing of its graphene oxide material by a U.S. based advanced materials company developing silicon-graphene anodes for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries.
Zenyatta stated that preliminary results showed the ease of processing with its graphene oxide and similar electrochemical performance compared to the control material that is currently being used by the U.S. company. Zenyatta's high-purity graphite was recently converted to graphene oxide and then sent to the U.S. collaborator for testing as an advanced nano-material in a new Lithium-ion battery.
The tester will continue to carry out advanced testing on Zenyatta's graphene oxide for use in Lithium-ion anode composite material. Additional testing will include the determination of the following: Aqueous dispersion quality; Compatibility with processing method and yield; Electrochemical performance; Characterization of the composite material.
