Rice husk-derived carbon anodes for lithium ion batteries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Carbon fibers were obtained using hydrothermal carbonization of rice husk followed by further heat treatment at 1000 °C to increase the conductivity and removal of the silica fraction to increase the porosity. These carbon fibers show superior capacity retention and rate performance as anode in lithium ion batteries.
