Designed Synthesis of coaxial SnO₂@carbon hollow nanospheres for highly reversible lithium storage
Lou, X.W.; Li, C.M.; Archer, L.A.
A proof-of-concept structural design is demonstrated for high-capacity lithium-ion batteries anode materials by multistep synthesis of coaxial SnO2@coarbon hollow nanospheres. This material integrates two beneficial features: hollow structure and carbon nanopainting. When evaluated for reversible lithium storage, these functional materials manifest excellent cycling performance and rate capabilities.
