The successful commercialization of promising silicon-based anode materials has been hampered by their poor cycling stability caused by the huge volume change. Integration of carbon matrix with silicon-based (C/Si-based) anode materials has been demonstrated to be a powerful solution to achieve satisfied electrochemical performance. This minireview aims to outline recent developments on C/Si-based composites, with the emphasis on the importance of carbon distribution at multiple scales. In addition, the forms of carbon framework (carbon sources and doping of heteroatoms) have been summarized. Particularly, a novel C/Si-based hybrid with carbon distributed at the atomic scale has been highlighted.

A broad family of synthetic organosiloxane polymers containing a repeating silicon-oxygen backbone with organic side groups attached via carbon-silicon bonds. Depending on their structure, they are classified as liquids, gels, and elastomers. (From Merck Index, 12th ed)
A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.
