Waste PET Plastic-Derived CoNi-Based Metal–Organic Framework as an Anode for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Abstract

Recycling waste PET plastics into metal–organic frameworks is conducive to both pollution alleviation and sustainable economic development. Herein, we have utilized waste PET plastic to synthesize CoNi-MOF applied to lithium battery anode materials via a low-temperature solvothermal method for the first time. The preparation process is effortless, and the sources’ conversion rate can reach almost 100%. In addition, the anode performance of MOFs with various Co/Ni mole ratios was investigated. The as-synthesized Co0.8Ni-MOF exhibits excellent crystallinity, purity, and electrochemical performance. The initial discharge and charge capacities are 2496 and 1729 mAh g–1, respectively. Even after 200 cycles, the Co0.8Ni-MOF electrode can exhibit a high Coulombic efficiency of over 99%. Consequently, given the environmental and economic benefits, the Co0.8Ni-MOF derived from waste PET plastic is thought to be an appealing anode material for lithium-ion batteries
