This work presents the effects of binders on the electrochemical performance of Si-C composites as the anode of lithium ion batteries. PAI (polyamide-imide) was used as an organic binder, and PAN (polyacrylonitrile), PAA (polyacrylic acid) and CMC + SBR (carboxymethyl cellulose + styrene-butadiene rubber) were used as aqueous binders. As a result, stabilization time for the cell with a Si-C composite anode synthesized using aqueous binders became shorter than an organic binder. Particularly in the case of the cell using PAA binder, better performance was observed in terms of adhesion strength, initial efficiency, the volume expansion ratio, Coulombic efficiency, and capacity retention.
