Amorphous carbon derived from rice husk has been investigated as anode materials
for lithium-ion battery. The electrode was prepared in pellet-shape using hand press.
The sample was assembled in half-cell and cycled for charge-discharge using battery
cycler system. The result showed initial higher capacity but reduced drastically upon
further cycling test. SEM analysis showed that carbon particles agglomerated when
the number of charge-discharge increased. XRD analysis indicated the deterioration
of carbon structure occurred after cycling.
