We report a novel, active-inactive type Tin-Antimony-Nickel alloy with flaky morphology electrodeposited on 3D interconnected microporous Nickel foam (~30 μm pore diameter) as a promising high-specific-capacity anode for Li ion batteries. The multiphase composition (SnSb and Ni3Sn4 “reactant” intermetallics dispersed in Tin “matrix” with 43.52% Sn, 24.70% SnSb, 14.03% Ni3Sn4 and 17.75% Ni) alleviates the volumetric stress generated during cycling by lithiating at different potentials (0.84V, 0.66V, 0.57V, 0.42V, 0.39V and .35-.25V). Nickel foam provides effective electron pathways and successfully acts as a stress buffer preventing delamination and pulverisation. These combinations of properties in Tin-Antimony-Nickel anode on Nickel foam results in a higher reversible capacity (834.38 mAh/g at 200 mA/g after the 2nd cycle and 70% capacity retention after 100 cycles), superior rate capability and stable cycle retention while preserving its structural integrity in comparison to a Tin-Antimony-Nickel anode on a planar nickel foil as a current collector.
