The equilibrium structures, formation energy, mechanical properties and electronic properties of Co-Sn intermetallics have been systemically studied by first-principles study. The results show that the CoSn phase is more thermodynamically stable than any other stoichiometry of Co-Sn intermetallics. With the increasing of Co content in Co-Sn intermetallics, the mechanical properties change into brittle behavior from ductility character. Adding proper amount of Co to Co-Sn intermetallics can improve the cycle performance for lithium ion battery anode. However, high Co content will lead to a poor cycle performance for Co-Sn intermetallics.
