B.1 Method summary
In the oxygen or air environment, the silicon-carbon material is fired at a high
temperature of 1200 °C. Carbon in it reacts with oxygen to generate CO2 gas, which is
discharged; silicon reacts with oxygen to generate SiO2. Finally all the material is
converted into SiO2. According to the mass of the reaction product SiO2, the mass of
the silicon element in the original sample can be calculated, to obtain the content of the
silicon element in the silicon-carbon material.

B.2.5 Crucible tongs.
B.2.6 Blast oven.
B.2.7 Dryer.
B.2.8 Stainless steel tray.
B.3 Analytical procedure
B.3.1 Crucible pretreatment
Before the test, clean and dry the corundum crucible; burn it in a box-type resistance
furnace or atmosphere furnace (see B.2.1) at 1200 °C for 1 h. When the temperature
drops below 200 ℃, take it out. After a little cooling, put it into a dryer to cool down to
room temperature, and weigh. Then burn again, until the mass difference between the
two times is not more than 0.3 mg.
B.3.2 Sample weighing
Weigh 1.0000 g~1.2000 g of the sample into the corundum crucible, accurate to 0.1 mg.
Weigh 2 pieces and carry out a parallel test.
B.3.3 Test
B.3.3.1 Put the corundum crucibles with the weighed samples into the box-type
resistance furnace or atmosphere furnace (see B.2.1) in turn. The corundum crucibles
shall not be in contact with each other.
B.3.3.2 Burning program setting of box-type resistance furnace or atmosphere furnace
(see B.2.1): The heating rate is not more than 20 ℃/min. Rise from room temperature
to 1200 ℃; burn at 1200 ℃ for 8 h; then stop heating.
According to the requirements of the equipment manual or other technical documents,
pre-dry the box-type resistance furnace or atmosphere furnace, to prevent the failure of
instruments and crucibles such as rupture. During the heating process, if the sample or
crucible bursts, splashes or becomes contaminated, the heating program can be
readjusted; and the test can be redone.
B.3.3.3 Start the heating program and start burning.
B.3.3.4 Cool and weigh: When the temperature of the box-type resistance furnace or
atmosphere furnace (see B.2.1) drops below 200 °C, open the furnace door; use crucible
tongs to take out the crucible; place it in a clean stainless steel tray. Cool for 2 min;
place the tray and the sample into a dryer; cool to room temperature. Use an electronic
balance (see B.2.3) to weigh the total mass of the cooled crucible and product.
B.3.3.5 Constant weight: Put the crucible and product into the box-type resistance
furnace or atmosphere furnace (see B.2.1) again. According to the steps of
B.3.3.1~B.3.3.4, burn and weigh again. Compare and obtain the mass difference with
the first burning. If it does not exceed 0.3 mg, the test is over. Otherwise, repeat this
step until the mass difference after two burnings does not exceed 0.3 mg.
B.3.4 Result calculation
B.3.4.1 According to the steps of B.3.3, respectively record the crucible mass m0, the
sample mass m1, the total mass m2 of crucible and product after burning, and the total
mass m3 of crucible and product after the constant weight. Then the silicon content in
the sample is calculated according to formula (B.1):
wSi - The mass fraction of silicon in the sample;
D.4.1 Put the specimen and conductive agent into the oven; bake at 120 ℃ for 4 h; then
transfer to a drying vessel to cool. Weigh the mixture powder (accurate to 0.0001 g) of
4.55 g of specimen and 0.15 g of conductive agent INTO a small beaker with a capacity
of 50 mL; then add 6.0 g of 5% PAA aqueous solution to the beaker. Finally, use a
planetary stirrer to prepare a paste (stirring time 15 min; stirring speed 2000 r/min).
Note: The reference specimen, the binder, and the conductive agent are weighed in a mass ratio of
91 : 6 : 3.
D.4.2 Apply the paste in D.4.1 evenly on the copper foil; use a 200 μm film coater to
scrape the paste on the copper foil, until the surface is smooth. Then put it into a blast
drying oven and bake it at 100 °C for 2 h. Or use an equivalent type of coating method
to obtain a pole piece with a single surface density of 60 g/m2~100 g/m2.
D.4.3 The baked pole pieces are cut and pressed into electrodes of various shapes
(rectangular strips, strips or circles, etc.). After accurate weighing (accurate to 0.00001
g), put it into a vacuum drying oven; bake it at 120 °C for 8 h under vacuum conditions,
to prepare the silicon-carbon working electrode.
D.4.4 In an argon atmosphere glove box, cut metal lithium into rectangular strips, strips
or circles, etc. Then, press the above-mentioned cut metal lithium to the end of the cut
strip-shaped nickel mesh (or other current collectors with the same performance), to
form a counter electrode (or directly use metal lithium as the counter electrode).
D.4.5 ASSEMBLE the positive electrode material electrode and the counter electrode
made by the above steps, AND 1 mol/L LiPF6 EC (ethylene carbonate)/DMC (dimethyl
carbonate)/EMC (ethyl methyl carbonate) (the volume ratio of EC to DMC to EMD is
1 : 1 : 1) electrolyte (or other electrolytes with equivalent performance), in a glove box
to form a well-sealed half-cell conforming to the electrode system.
Note: The specimen pole piece is prepared in a dry room. The temperature is 23 ℃±2 ℃. The
relative humidity is ≤35%. The sample cell is prepared in a glove box. The temperature is
