Abstract
Abstract A facile double hydrothermal method for the fabrication of α-Fe2O3/Nb2O5 heterostructure is employed to compare and evaluate the structural properties of the negative electrode for Li-ion batteries (LIBs) features. Basically, in this research work, we accumulate the α-Fe2O3 nanorods (NRs), with high specific capacity and less stability, with the Nb2O5 interconnected nanoparticles (INP), having the less specific capacity and high stability, to see the electrode features of the synthesized composite materials in LIBs. Based on our calculated results, the synthesized α-Fe2O3/Nb2O5 heterostructure has a high specific capacitance and good stability, are established. Cyclic Voltammetry (CV), Galvanostatic charge/discharge (GCD) and cycling test are done in the voltage range of 0–3 V. The specific capacity of the α-Fe2O3/Nb2O5 heterostructure is enhanced from 178 mAh g−1 to 1125 mAh g−1 with excellent cyclic stability for 500 cycles. Moreover, the superior electronic conductivity, higher specific capacity, high rate capability, and high reversibility and upgraded performance of the α-Fe2O3/Nb2O5 heterostructure as LIBs electrode are attributed due to unique structural features, high specific surface area and synergic effect of the heterostructure. Up to the best of our knowledge, the synthesized heterostructure yet not been applied in the LIBs. The promising results in application inferred that it can be a significant step to meet the demands of future industrial-level devices.

FeSe2–carbon nanotube (FeSe2–CNT) hybrid microspheres are investigated as anode materials for lithium ion batteries (LIBs), exhibiting a high specific capacity of 571.2 mA h g−1 at 0.5 A g−1 with excellent rate performance and cycling stability. The FeSe2–CNT hybrid LIBs could withstand the high-voltage pulse of triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) and be charged by TENGs directly for harvesting energy with high stability.

Abstract We develop a simple and effective strategy to synthesize Cu-doped SnSe 2 nanoflakes composites. The Cu doping plays triple roles in electrode: to buffer the volume change of SnSe 2 , to improve the conductivity of the electrode system, and to provide a considerable electrochemical catalytic function. From overall performance point of view, the SnSe 2 /0.4Cu sample exhibits the best lithium-storage performance with both superior cycling stability as well as excellent rate performance. Re...

: Tin diselenide (SnSe2 ), as an anode material, has outstanding potential for use in advanced lithium-ion batteries. However, like other tin-based anodes, SnSe2 suffers from poor cycle life and low rate capability due to large volume expansion during the repeated Li+ insertion/de-insertion process. This work reports an effective and easy strategy to combine SnSe2 and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to form a SnSe2 /CNTs hybrid nanostructure. The synthesized SnSe2 has a regular hexagonal shape with a ty...

Abstract Tin oxide (SnO2) is an attractive anode in lithium ion batteries (LIBs), but its applications have been significantly hampered by the huge volume change during the electrochemical cycling. In this work we demonstrate a rational design of crystalline SnO2 @ amorphous TiO2 core-shell nanostructures, where the crystalline SnO2 core was synthesized by a hydrothermal method and the amorphous TiO2 shell was deposited by atomic layer deposition. The SnO2@TiO2 nanostructures deliver excellent p...

Abstract One-dimensional (1D) and porous Nb2O5-TiO2 n-n junction nanofibers with different Nb molar ratios have been synthesized by a simple electrospinning approach. A decrease in the average grain size and consequently an increase in the specific surface area were observed due to the introduction of Nb2O5 into TiO2 nanofibers. In comparison with pure TiO2 nanofibers, the Nb2O5-TiO2 nanofibers exhibited improved ethanol sensing response and a reduction in electrical resistance. The optimum oper...
