Abstract: Robust composite structures consisting of Fe3O4 nanoparticles (∼5 nm) embedded in mesoporous carbon spheres with an average size of about 70 nm (IONP@mC) are synthesized by a facile two-step method: uniform Fe3O4 nanoparticles are first synthesized followed by a post-synthetic low-temperature hydrothermal step to encapsulate them in mesoporous carbon spheres. Instead of graphene which has been extensively reported for use in high-rate battery applications as a carbonaceous material combined with metal oxides mesoporous carbon is chosen to enhance the overall performances. The interconnecting pores facilitate the penetration of electrolyte leading to direct contact between electrochemically active Fe 3O4 and lithium ion-carrying electrolyte greatly facilitating lithium ion transportation. The interconnecting carbon framework provides continuous 3D electron transportation routes. The anodes fabricated from IONP@mC are cycled under high current densities ranging from 500 to 10 000 mA g-1. A high reversible capacity of 271 mAh g-1 is reached at 10 000 mAh g-1 demonstrating its superior high rate performance. Robust composite structures consisting of Fe3O 4 nanoparticles (∼5 nm) embedded in uniform mesoporous carbon spheres with an average size of about 70 nm (IONP@mC) are synthesized with the purpose of application in high-rate batteries. Under high current densities ranging from 500 to 10 000 mA g-1 such composites deliver stable and high reversible capacities reaching 271 mAh g-1 at 10 000 mA g -1. © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
