Samsung invests in XG Sciences, to co-develop graphene-based batteries

Lansing, MI | Posted on January 30th, 2014

XG Sciences also plans to formalize their development work with Samsung SDI (the world's largest Li-Ion battery maker) in a joint development program aimed at next-generation batteries for consumer electronics and other devices.

In April 2013 XG Sciences launched new graphene-based anode materials for Li-Ion batteries that has four times the capacity of conventional anodes. The new anode materials use the XG's xGnP graphene nanoplatelets to stabilize silicon particles in a nano-engineered composite structure. Later in November 201 XGS has been awarded $1 million in funding from the US Department of Energy for continued development of these lithium-ion battery materials. I do not know whether these materials are part of the development effort of XGS and Samsung SDI.
