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. ...
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 ...
Synthesis of single-crystalline LiMn2O4 and LiMn1.5Ni0.5O4 nanocrystals and their lithium storage properties
Yolk–shell spheres as nanoreactors: Single-crystalline LiMn2O4 and LiMn1.5Ni0.5O4 nanocrystals have been prepared by using yolk–shell spheres as nanoreactors to confine the size of the nanocrystals to a range of 14–19 nm ...
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 ...
Template-free synthesis of urchin-like Co3O4 hollow spheres with good lithium storage properties
Hierarchical urchin-like hollow spheres (5–8 μm in diameter) assembled by one-dimensional nanowires consisting of many interconnected Co3O4 nanoparticles (10–50 nm) are successfully synthesized. Co(CO3)0.5(OH)·0.11H2O ...
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 ...
