Abstract: Bulk CrN nanoparticles are prepared by the thermal decomposition of a Cr-urea complex in a flowing NH3 + N2 atmosphere and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high resolution-transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) along with selective area electron diffraction (SAED) techniques. The Li-cycling performance of bulk CrN is evaluated by galvanostatic cycling and cyclic voltammetry on the cells with Li metal as counter electrode in the voltage range of 0.005-3.0 (3.5) V at ambient temperature. When cycled at 60 mA g-1 (0.1 C) up to 3.0 V, the composition 55:30:15 (active material:carbon:binder) showed a first-cycle reversible capacity of 635 (±10) mA h g-1 (1.6 moles of Li). The reversible capacity of 500 (±10) mA h g-1 (1.23 moles of Li) is stable between 10 and 80 cycles. At 0.5 C, it showed a stable capacity of 350 (±10) mA h g-1 for 40 cycles and the original capacity is regained when cycled at 0.1 C rate after 160 cycles. The coulombic efficiency is found to be >96% in the range of 20-80 cycles. The low impedance at the discharge potential
