Synthesis of porous amorphous FePO4 nanotubes and their lithium storage properties
Holey pipes: An oil-phase chemical route was used to prepare porous amorphous a-FePO4 nanotubes. In the etching process, Fe2O3 reacted with weak acid, resulting in nanotubes with a pore size of 2–10 nm. The porous nanotubes ...
MS2 (M = Co and Ni) hollow spheres with tunable Interiors for high-performance supercapacitors and photovoltaics
We demonstrate in this paper facile synthesis of CoS2 and NiS2 hollow spheres with various interiors through a solution-based route. The obtained CoS2 microspheres constructed by nanosheets display a three-dimensional ...
Synthesis of porous, hollow metal MCO3 (M=Mn, Co, Ca) microstructures and adsorption properties thereof
Porous, hollow metal carbonate microstructures show many unique properties, and are attractive for various applications. Herein, we report the first demonstration of a general strategy to synthesize hollow metal carbonate ...
Carbon buffered-transition metal oxidenanoparticle-graphene hybrid nanosheets as high-performance anode materials for lithium ion batteries
In this article, we report a simple and general method for the synthesis of carbon buffered-metal oxidenanoparticle (NP)–graphene hybrid 2D nanosheets, which include C-SnO2–rGO and C-Fe2O3–rGO nanosheets. For the preparation ...
Synthesis of cobalt phosphides and their application as anodes for lithium ion batteries
A facile thermal decomposing method has been developed for the fabrication of CoxP nanostructures with controlled size, phase, and shape (e.g., Co2P rod and spheres, CoP hollow and solid particles). An amorphous carbon ...
Controlled synthesis of double-wall a-FePO4 nanotubes and their LIB cathode properties
Double-wall amorphous FePO4 nanotubes are prepared by an oil-phase chemical route. The inward diffusion of vacancies and outward diffusion of ions through passivation layers result in double-wall nanotubes with thin walls. ...
