Synthesis of uniform layered protonated titanate hierarchical spheres and their transformation to anatase TiO2 for lithium-ion batteries
Layered protonated titanates (LPTs), a class of interesting inorganic layered materials, have been widely studied because of their many unique properties and their use as precursors to many important TiO2-based functional ...
Titania nanosheets hierarchically assembled on carbon nanotubes as high-rate anodes for lithium-ion batteries
Obey the hierarchy! Hierarchically structured nanocables with TiO2 nanosheets (TiO2-NSs) anchored on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been synthesized by growing layered hydrogen titanate (LHT) nanosheets on carbon nanotubes, ...
Direct synthesis of anatase TiO2 nanowires with enhanced photocatalytic activity
Anatase TiO2 nanowires have been directly synthesized via a one-pot solvothermal approach. The curved nanowires with a length of ca. 300 nm and a diameter of ca. 10 nm are grown along the  direction and assembled into ...
Embedding sulfur in MOF-derived microporous carbon polyhedrons for lithium-sulfur batteries
Microporous carbon polyhedrons (MPCPs) are derived from unique MOF polyhedrons, and used as a model microporous carbon host for sulfur in Li–S batteries. Systematic investigations have been carried out to reveal the effects ...
Facile synthesis of metal oxide/reduced graphene oxide hybrids with high lithium storage capacity and stable cyclability
We report an environment-friendly approach to synthesize transition metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs)/ reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets hybrids by combining the reduction of graphene oxide (GO) with the growth of ...
