General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.
Lithium ribbon, thickness × W 0.38 mm × 23 mm is a class of electrode material that can be used in the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries consist of anode, cathode, and electrolyte with a charge-discharge cycle. These materials enable the formation of greener and sustainable batteries for electrical energy storage.

Application

Lithium ribbon can be used as a counter and a reference electrode for lithium-ion batteries. It can also be used in the fabrication of textile-based batteries.
