SiOC@C is a lithium-ion battery (LIB) anode candidate that is expected to suppress the high volume expansion of Si by the presence of activated carbon as a buffer layer. Silicon oxycarbide (SiOC) was obtained from phenyl-rich silicone oil through pyrolysis at 900°C with flowing Ar gas. The variation of samples used were 4 and 10wt.% SiOC and a pure carbon sample was also prepared for comparison. SEM images show a porous microstructure with a few chunks of agglomerate present. According to Brunner-Emmet-Teller (BET) test, the largest surface area of 542.738 m 2 /g was obtained at 10wt.%SiOC. Based on the performance test result, the highest discharge capacity of 223.3 mAh/g was obtained at the mentioned prime condition.
