Antimony is alloyed with other metals to modify their properties and mechanical properties. This element is frequently alloyed with lead and other metals to improve strength and durability. Antimony can harden brittle and soft metal alloys, allowing them to be worked in a variety of processes.
The antimony is used to harden lead. While the ductility of lead is desirable for metal machining, pure lead is extremely soft. When antimony is added to lead, it becomes extremely hard and durable.
The Global Lead Antimony Alloy Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Antimony-Based Anodes for Sodium and Potassium-Ion Batteries: Recent Advances.The abundance of resources and affordability of Na and K have accelerated the development of sodium-ion (SIBs) and potassium-ion batteries (PIBs).
Because of its high theoretical capacity, suitable working voltage, and inexpensive cost, antimony (Sb) plays a significant role in SIBs and PIBs. Large volume changes and poor charge transfer during the charge and discharge operations are disadvantages of Sb-based anodes, which results in poor cycling and quick capacity deterioration. Many methods and a range of Sb-based materials have been created to alleviate these disadvantages.
The development of various Sb-based anodes for SIBs and PIBs from the viewpoint of compositional choice, technological preparation, structural features, and energy storage behaviours.Moreover, related examples are provided to highlight the benefits or drawbacks of different anodes.
The difficulties in creating Sb-based materials for Na/K-ion batteries , along with probable routes for their future development.The ability of materials based on Sb to store salt and potassium at low temperatures is more impressive than adequate high-temperature performance.
The high- and low-temperature sodium/potassium storage capacities are an indispensable basic requirement for large-scale fixed energy conversion equipment in the future.Sb-based materials, on the other hand, demonstrated early and reasonably good low-temperature stability in their low-temperature Na storage behaviour. Hence, the high/low temperature characteristics of Sb-based materials in SIBs/PIBs will be a long-term opportunity and challenge.
