Growth of Si nanowires in porous carbon with enhanced cycling stability for Li-ion storage
Si nanowires are successfully grown in porous carbon by supercritical fluid-liquid-solid (SFLS) process, which show high specific capacities and charge–discharge cycling stability as anode materials for Li-ion storage. ...
Vanadium pentoxide cathode materials for high-performance lithium-ion batteries enabled by a hierarchical nanoflower structure via an electrochemical process
Hierarchical vanadium oxide nanoflowers (V10O24·nH2O) were synthesized via a simple, high throughput method employing a fast electrochemical reaction of vanadium foil in NaCl aqueous solution, followed by an aging treatment ...
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 ...
Ultrathin V2O5 nanosheet cathodes : realizing ultrafast reversible lithium storage
Few-layer V2O5 nanosheets with a thickness of 2.1–3.8 nm have been successfully synthesized in this work via a simple and scalable liquid exfoliation technique. The unique nanostructure allows the high-rate transportation ...
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 ...
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 ...
