We describe here the interaction of poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) with graphite based on the rheological behavior of the slurries and the surface morphology of PVDF in the final composite anode. The rheological properties of slurries show the interaction between graphite and PVDF with the viscosity varying over six orders of magnitude for different graphite particles. We correlated the suspension viscosity with the final film properties. The homogeneity of the PVDF distribution in the final composite film increases as the slurry viscosity increases. The interaction between graphite and PVDF is altered through the chemical properties of polymer such as molecular weight and functionality, leading to an improved morphology of PVDF.
