Abstract

original image

Mussels provide a clever idea for lithium battery technology! Jang Wook Choi, Haeshin Lee, and co-workers were inspired by the unusual wet-adhesion capability of mussels. On page 1571, the researchers conjugate mussel-inspired catechol groups to various polymer backbones and use them as binders for silicon lithium battery anodes. The mussel-inspired binders increase the capacity and lifetime of silicon anodes significantly
