Accurate Control of Multishelled Co3O4 Hollow Microspheres as High-Performance Anode Materials in Lithium-Ion Batteries
MetadataShow full item record
More than just an empty shell: Multishelled Co3O4 microspheres were synthesized as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries in high yield and purity. As their porous hollow multishell structure guarantees a shorter Li+ diffusion length and sufficient void space to buffer the volume expansion, their rate capacity, cycling performance, and specific capacity were excellent (1615.8 mA?h?g-1 in the 30th cycle for triple-shelled Co3O4; see graph).
