Self-Climbed Amorphous Carbon Nanotubes Filled with Transition Metal Oxide Nanoparticles for Large Rate and Long Lifespan Anode Materials in Lithium Ion Batteries

Self-Climbed Amorphous Carbon Nanotubes Filled with Transition Metal Oxide Nanoparticles for Large Rate and Long Lifespan Anode Materials in Lithium Ion Batteries

A composed material of amorphous carbon nanotubes (ACNTs) and encapsulated transition metal oxide (TMOs) nanoparticles was prepared by a common thermophysics effect, which is named the Marangoni effect, and a simple anneal process. The prepared ropy solution would form a Marangoni convection and climb into the channel of anodic aluminum oxide template (AAO) spontaneously. The ingenious design of the preparation method determined a distinctive structure of TMOs nanoparticles with a size of ∼5 nm and amorphous carbon coated outside full in the ACNTs. Here we prepared the ferric oxide (Fe2O3) nanoparticles and Fe2O3 mixed with manganic oxide (Fe2O3&Mn2O3) nanoparticles encapsulated in ACNTs as two anode materials of lithium ion batteries’ the TMOs-filled ACNTs presented an evolutionary electrochemical performance in some respects of highly reversible capacity and excellent cycling stability (880 mA h g–1 after 150 cycles).
