Optimization of Synthesis Conditions of Indigotindisulfonate Lithium Based on Orthogonal Experimental Design Method
World Journal of Applied Chemistry
With the developing research on anode materials for lithium ion batteries, organic anode materials have gained increasing attention nowadays. Compared with inorganic anode materials, organic anode materials have numerous material options and extensive sources. Moreover, they consume low energy and can enter carbon cycles, which are environment friendly. indigotindisulfonate lithium is characterized with a unique redox reaction and can be used as an anode material. Indigotindisulfonate Lithium
... n be produced by using indigo as a raw material sulfonated with fuming sulfuric acid, and further reacted with Li 2 CO 3 . Regarding this issue, impacts of various factors under different conditions were investigated, and an orthogonal experimental design method was proposed based on optimization conditions. This method was established through T-6 new century ultraviolet spectrophotometer to determine the influence of different conditions, and develop a best combination based on different microwave powers (w), temperatures (°C), and time lengths (min). In this experiment, the maximum absorption peak was determined by scanning wave length, under which the absorbency was identified and the standard curve was established. In order to determine the optimized synthesis condition of indigotindisulfonate lithium, orthogonal experiment design method was applied combining three levels coupled with four factors. From this study, it is concluded that 550w, 3min, 30°C with an indigo-fuming sulfuric acid concentration ratio of 0.02:1 is the best condition to synthesize indigotindisulfonate lithium.
