|Title:||Electrochemical intercalation of lithium in carbon nanotubes-Sn2Sb nanocomposites used as anode of lithium ion batteries||Authors:||Chen, W.-X.
|Issue Date:||Mar-2004||Citation:||Chen, W.-X.,Li, N.,Han, G.,LEE, J.Y.,Liu, Z.-L. (2004-03). Electrochemical intercalation of lithium in carbon nanotubes-Sn2Sb nanocomposites used as anode of lithium ion batteries.

ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Nanocomposites of carbon nanotubes-Sn2Sb alloy were prepared by chemical reduction using KBH4 as reducing agent. TEM imaging showed that most of the Sn-Sb alloy nanoparticles were uniformly dispersed in the CNT web, whereas some Sn-Sb alloy was coated on the outside surface of CNTs. Electrochemical experiments demonstrated that the nanoicomposites exhibited improved cyclability compared to unsupported Sn-Sb alloy and higher reversible specific capacities than CNTs. The improved cyclability may be attributed to the existence of CNTs, which improve the structural stability of electrode materials during charge/discharge cycling.||Source Title:||Zhejiang Daxue Xuebao (Gongxue Ban)/Journal of Zhejiang University (Engineering Science)||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/88823||ISSN:||1008973X|
