α-Fe2O3-mediated growth and carbon nanocoating of ultrafine SnO2 nanorods as anode materials for Li-ion batteries
Bulk synthesis of SnO2 nanorods under acidic conditions has rarely been reported. In this work, ultrafine SnO2 nanorods with a diameter of less than 10 nm and a length of 50–100 nm have been synthesized by an interesting ...
One-step synthesis of SnO2 and TiO2 hollow nanostructures with various shapes and their enhanced lithium storage properties
A versatile one-step method for the general synthesis of metal oxide hollow nanostructures is demonstrated. This method involves the controlled deposition of metal oxides on shaped α-Fe2O3 crystals which are ...
Mesoporous single-crystal CoSn(OH)6 hollow structures with multilevel interiors
Hollow nanostructures represent a unique class of functional nanomaterials with many applications. In this work, a one-pot and unusual ‘‘pumpkin-carving’’ protocol is demonstrated for engineering mesoporous single-crystal ...
Amorphous CoSnO3@C nanoboxes with superior lithium storage capability
Amorphous CoSnO3@C nanoboxes have been synthesized by thermal annealing of CoSn(OH)6 nanoboxes, followed by carbon nanocoating. Benifiting from the unique structure, they exhibit exceptional long-term cycling stability ...
