Abstract

In current study, possibility of Si-nanocage (Si48) and C-nanocage (C60) as anodes in LIB, NIB and KIB are examined via computational methods. Adsorption of Zinc oxide (ZnO), Germanium dioxide (GeO2), Nickel oxide (NiO) and Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) on Si48 and C60 are examined. The potential of GeO2-Si-nanocage, ZnO-Si-nanocage, ZrO2-C-nanocage and NiO-C-nanocage as anodes in LIB, NIB and KIB are compared with Si-nanocage (Si48) and C-nanocage (C60). The Vcell of Si-nanocage, GeO2-Si-nanocage, ZnO-Si-nanocage, C-nanocage, ZrO2-C-nanocage and NiO-C-nanocage as anodes in MIBs are examined. NiO, ZnO, ZrO2 and GeO2 are increased Vcell of Si-nanocages and C-nanocages, significantly. The Li-, Na- and K-ion batteries with ZrO2 and GeO2 have greater Vcell in comparison to NiO and ZnO. ZrO2-C-nanocage and GeO2-Si-nanocage are suggested as high performance anodes in metal-ion batteries.
