Controlled synthesis of double-wall a-FePO4 nanotubes and their LIB cathode properties
Double-wall amorphous FePO4 nanotubes are prepared by an oil-phase chemical route. The inward diffusion of vacancies and outward diffusion of ions through passivation layers result in double-wall nanotubes with thin walls. ...
Vanadium pentoxide-based cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries : morphology control, carbon hybridization, and cation doping
Vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) is a promising cathode material for high-performance lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) because of its high specific capacity, low cost, and abundant source. However, the practical application of V2O5 ...
Nanostructured conjugated ladder polymers for stable and fast lithium storage anodes with high-capacity
N anoparticles of n-type conjugated ladder polymer poly(benzobisimidazobenzophenanthroline) (BBL) and its analogue (SBBL) are prepared through a reprecipitation method. The ladder polymers are tested as anode materials ...
Recycling bacteria for the synthesis of LiMPO4 (M = Fe, Mn) nanostructures for high-power lithium batteries
In this work, a novel waste-to-resource strategy to convert waste bacteria into a useful class of cathode materials, lithium metal phosphate (LiMPO4; M = Fe, Mn), is presented. Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria used for ...
Graphene and graphene-based materials for energy storage applications
With the increased demand in energy resources, great efforts have been devoted to developing advanced energy storage and conversion systems. Graphene and graphene-based materials have attracted great attention owing to ...
Fabrication of flexible thermoelectric thin film devices by inkjet printing
Ink-jet printing of thermoelectric nanomaterials is successfully used to fabricate flexible thin film TE devices for power generation and cooling.
n-type carbon nanotubes/silver telluride nanohybrid buckypaper with a high-thermoelectric figure of merit
N-type thermoelectric materials was made from CNT buckypapers. We used Ag2Te to achieve electron injection to the CNTs. The thermoelectric characterizations on more than 50 samples show that the CNTs/Ag2Te hybrids exhibit ...
Platinum and palladium nanotubes based on genetically engineered elastin-mimetic fusion protein-fiber templates : synthesis and application in lithium-O2 batteries
The coupling of proteins with self-assembly properties and proteins that are capable of recognizing and mineralizing specific inorganic species is a promising strategy for the synthesis of nanoscale materials with controllable ...
Preparation of novel 3D graphene networks for supercapacitor applications
Chemical vapor deposition is used to prepare novel 3D graphene networks, with ethanol as the carbon source. These networks are used as templates for the construction of graphene/metal oxide composite-based supercapacitor ...
A facile, relative green, and inexpensive synthetic approach toward large-scale production of SnS2 nanoplates for high-performance lithium-ion batteries
A facile, environmentally friendly, and economical synthetic route for production of large-amounts (gram scale) of two-dimensional (2D) layered SnS2 nanoplates is presented. The electrode fabricated from the SnS2 nanoplate ...
