Design of nanostructured hybrid materials based on carbon and metal oxides for Li ion batteries
Development of advanced electrode materials for Li ion battery (LIB) has attracted great attention due to the demand for portable power sources with higher energy density and higher power density. Transition metal oxides ...
Synthesis of hexagonal-symmetry α-iron oxyhydroxide crystals using reduced graphene oxide as a surfactant and their Li storage properties
Microcrystalline α-iron oxyhydroxide/reduced graphene oxide (α-FeOOH/rGO) samples have been successfully synthesized by a facile hydrothermal process. The α-FeOOH/rGO samples are either hexagonal disks with a diameter of ...
Oxidation-etching preparation of MnO2 tubular nanostructures for high-performance supercapacitors
1D hierarchical tubular MnO2 nanostructures have been prepared through a facile hydrothermal method using carbon nanofibres (CNFs) as sacrificial template. The morphology of MnO2 nanostructures can be adjusted by changing ...
Controlled synthesis of carbon-coated cobalt sulfide nanostructures in oil phase with enhanced Li storage performances
A novel solvothermal process was developed for the synthesis of carbon-coated Co9S8 nanodandelions using 1-dodecanethiol as the sulfur source and the soft template. Replacing 1-dodecanethiol with sulfur powder as the sulfur ...
In situ growth of Si nanowires on graphene sheets for Li-ion storage
Si nanowires in graphene papers were successfully prepared by supercritical fluid–liquid–solid (SFLS) process, which showed high specific capacities and charge–discharge cycling stability as anode materials for Li-ion ...
Synthesis of CuxS/Cu nanotubes and their lithium storage properties
Novel CuxS/Cu (1 < x <2) nanotubes were prepared by a facile wet chemical approach in polyethylene glycol (PEG). Here, Cu nanowires were presynthesized and then converted to nanotubes via a mass diffusion process. A thin ...
