What is in an EV battery?
The critical metals in most batteries include:
Lithium, graphite, cobalt, nickel and manganese. (Could we show their periodic symbol
The lithium-ion battery (LIB) is expected to dominate the supply of rechargeable Electric Vehicle batteries in the near future.
The smallest component of the lithium-ion battery is the electrochemical cell consisting of:
- an anode (graphite)
- a cathode (a combination of different materials)
- An electrolyte (lithium) which connects the anode and cathode.
