Three-Dimensional Reduced Graphene Oxides Hydrogel Anchored with Ultrafine CoO Nanoparticles as Anode for Lithium Ion Batteries
Three-dimensional reduced graphene oxides hydrogel anchored with ultrafine CoO nanoparticles (CoO/RGO nanocomposite) is prepared by a facile hydrothermal strategy and subsequently heat-treatment process. The small-size Co nanoparticles are encapsulated within graphene-based hydrogel with robust interconnected networks for the CoO/RGO nanocomposite. The electrochemical performances are evaluated by using coin-type cells. It delivers high rate capacities of 890.2, 690.4, 543.8 and 457.0 mAh g(-1), even at 200, 800, 1600 and 2400 mA g(-1), respectively. The specific capacity increases to 1025.8 mAh g(-1) after 82 cycles when the current density is back to 100 mAg(-1), indicating excellent rate capability and cycle stability. The improved electrochemical performance is ascribed to the fabricated structure with three-dimensional RGO nanosheets. The CoO/RGO nanocomposite will be a promising candidate of anode material for lithium ion batteries. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
