A flexible TiO2(B)-based battery electrode with superior power rate and ultralong cycle life
A flexible film electrode is fabricated by growing TiO2(B) nanosheets on electrospun carbon nanofiber fabric. The hybrid electrode exhibits remarkable electrochemical performance with high reversible capacity, excellent ...
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 ...
Assembling carbon-coated α-Fe2O3 hollow nanohorns on the CNT backbone for superior lithium storage capability
Novel hierarchical nanostructures composed of carbon coated a- Fe2O3 hollow nanohorns on carbon nanotube (CNT) backbones have been constructed by direct growth and thermal transformation of b-FeOOH nanospindles on CNTs, ...
Formation of Pt-TiO2-rGO 3-phase junctions with significantly enhanced electro-activity for methanol oxidation
TiO2 nanoparticles-decorated graphene nanosheets have been prepared by a facile hydrothermal method. After depositing Pt nanoparticles exclusively around the interface between TiO2 and rGO, the obtained Pt/TiO2@rGO ...
Metal oxide hollow nanostructures for lithium-ion batteries
Metal oxide hollow structures have received great attention because of their many promising applications in a wide range of fields. As electrode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), metal oxide hollow structures ...
Green synthesis of NiO nanobelts with exceptional pseudo-capacitive properties
NiO nanobelts are prepared by a simple, green method. The as-prepared NiO nanobelts have supercapacitive performance that is superior to other NiO-based electrode materials, with a very high specific capacitance of ≈600 F ...
