Abstract

A concept is reported for long-lasting, high-performance lithium-ion anode with a uniform mixture of simultaneously prepared hierarchical carbon coated single crystal TiO2 nanorod spheres and carbon spheres. Such anodes result in many merits, such as (1) uniform mixing of active materials and conductive materials on micro-size scale, (2) compensation of the volume change by the voids between hierarchically structured TiO2 nanorod spheres, and (3) enhanced electronic conductivity of TiO2.
