Abstract

Mesoporous TiO<inf>2</inf> with well-distributed RuO<inf>2</inf> catalysts is considered in this paper as a carbon-free cathode material replacement. Benefiting from the highly-porous TiO<inf>2</inf> support structure and high catalytic activity of RuO<inf>2</inf>, the Li-O<inf>2</inf> cells with composite RuO<inf>2</inf>/mesoporous TiO<inf>2</inf> cathodes show low charge potentials with a high cell capacity. The stability of the TiO<inf>2</inf> materials was verified by investigating stable cell performance as well as through structural and chemical characterization via X-ray diffraction and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. This study demonstrates the possibility of achieving high energy at the cell level, free of carbon instability.
