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. ...
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 ...
