Graphite anode material is easily powdered under large currents, resulting in a short circuit inside the battery, causing serious safety hazards. Therefore, it is necessary to study a negative electrode material, increase the diffusion channel of lithium ions, increase the layer spacing, reduce the transmission distance, effectively weaken the lithium-ion deposition, and improve the cycle life. A novel organic hard carbon material was prepared by calcining dopamine hydrochloride (DA) at three temperatures. Under the inert atmosphere of 950 °C, the material is fully carbonized, the lattice spacing is 0.367 nm, and it has good lithium-ion transmission activity. After assembling into a battery, after 2000 charge-discharge tests at a high rate of 10C, the charging specific capacity is still 103.3mAh g-1, and the CE remains 101.4%. Dopamine hard carbon anode materials exhibit excellent specific capacity and cycle properties, providing new ideas to support the rapid charging and discharging of hard carbon anode materials.
