Facile Fabrication of ZnFe2O4-MWCNTs Composite as an Anode Material for Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Batteries

Journal Article


Abstract


  • n recent years, binary transition metal oxides have been more

    and more widely applied as anode materials for lithium-ion

    batteries (LIBs) because they can enhance the electrochemical

    performance beyond that of single transition metal oxides. In

    this work, we prepare ZnF e
