CNTs@gamma-Fe2O3@C composite electrode for high capacity lithium ion storage
Electrode materials with high specific capacity and cycle stability are the key factors that determine the overall performance of lithium ion batteries (LIBs) for new smart electronic device, and such materials with high performance are still challenging. Here, we report a composite material Carbon nanotube @ Iron oxide @ Carbon (gamma-CNTs@gamma-Fe2O3@C) with coaxial cable structure in hydrothermal method with the assistance of glucose. The as prepared composite materials show superior electrochemical properties with good rate capability and excellent cycling performance, which show the great potential of CNTstityFe(2)O(3)@C for practical production and application in energy devices.
