Tungsten Disulfide WS2 as Battery Material

The price of nickel and stainless steel rose together. Nickel afternoon hand in hand with stainless steel together turn red up. Due to the temporary easing of geopolitical risks, risk assets are now picking up, nonferrous metals, stock markets, and so on have risen, the overall mood has temporarily improved. Ore prices are strong, the overlay of the epidemic on spot logistics or the formation of a certain impact. Phase, nickel and stainless steel materials to maintain high wide concussion pattern.

Nickel prices based on low inventory, tight supply and demand will still show high wide fluctuations. In addition, the current LME has low liquidity, so its sensitivity to capital will remain relatively high. Shanghai nickel-wide fluctuations are expected to continue in the 200,000-250,000 yuan wide repeated fluctuation trend. While stainless steel is affected by the stronger nickel pig iron, the cost support continues, but note that under the current demand is not effectively released, the upward space may also be affected, the stage is expected to fluctuate between 20000 and 22,000 yuan. The price of nickel produced such fluctuations, indicating that the price of the graphene powder may also be affected to a certain extent.

The advent of sodium batteries is expected to alleviate the current constraints of lithium resource shortage on the rapid development of the new energy industry, and will further stimulate the application of transition metal disulfide such as tungsten disulfide WS2 in the field of power energy storage. 
 
Lithium-ion batteries are a key raw material for developing energy devices and realizing the vision of "carbon neutral". However, at present, the capital investment in the raw material end is difficult to cover the rapidly growing energy demand, and there is an obvious structural imbalance in the investment in the lithium electric industry chain, which leads to the rising cost of lithium raw materials. 
 
As a result, sodium batteries began to enter the field of vision. Sodium is abundant in nature, and as an energy material, it also has a large capacity and high-rate performance, which can effectively make up for the shortcomings of lithium-ion batteries in the current energy storage field. Although the price of sodium battery will be higher than lithium battery due to the small scale of the supply chain at present, with the maturity of technology, the cost-effective sodium battery will be an effective supplement to lithium battery, and it is even expected to serve the development of new energy field together with a lithium battery. 



Tungsten disulfide, as a potential battery material, is also expected to benefit from more market replenishment.
Tungsten disulfide is a layered material with remarkable surface effect, electron fluidity, thermochemical stability, and high density of electron states. It has been widely used in lithium and sodium storage. For example, nanocomposites used as conductive additives or graphene composite as anode material of batteries can show higher specific capacity and discharge efficiency, making up for the deficiency of single component WS2 or C as anode material. 
 
Graphene is a new anode material most studied by energy storage researchers in recent years. It has many advantages, such as excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, a large specific surface area, and so on. However, as an energy storage material, it still compensates for its own defects, such as the material is prone to structural collapse under a long cycle, which will lead to a serious decline in battery capacity. Therefore, graphene and WS2 nanomaterials with high thermochemical stability can effectively compensate for the shortcomings of graphene. 
In general, tungsten disulfide is an ideal choice for battery materials.

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to develop, there is growing concern about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the graphene powder may keep rising.
