Si-Ti-Ni alloy (STN) is a promising active material for lithium ion batteries with high coulombic efficiency and stable cycleability since inactive matrix plays an important role in buffer action against large volume changes of Si during charge/discharge reactions. However, there still remain several challenges to apply to electric vehicles due to capacity fading and unstable cycle performances at high current density. In this study, to improve the properties of STN, we modified the surface of STN with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) by in-situ polymerization. The modified STN provides many advantages including stable cycleability, low charge transfer resistance, strong adhesion between active materials and active material and current collector, etc. Electrochemical performances are significantly improved after modification; especially under high current density conditions.
