ABSRACT

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.
