|Outline of Final Research Achievements
A dealloying in metallic melt, a novel top-down process for preparing nanoporous Si powder was developed. By immersing magnesium-silicon alloy precursor in bismuth metal melt, magnesium selectively dissolved into bismuth melt and the remaining silicon atoms self-organized into an open-cell type nanoporous structure. A lithium secondary battery anode made with the developed nanoporous Si exhibited about 3 times higher capacity than that of graphite anode and extremely long lifetime exceeding 1500 cycles.
