Three-Dimensional C/SnO2 composites as anode materials for lithium ion batteries

Abstract


  • The nano-carbon materials have attracted a lot of research

    interests since the discovery of C60 molecule in 1985 by

    Kroto et al. (1), and the first experimental evidence of

    tabular carbon structure from Iijima in 1991 (2). Current

    methods used for the preparation of nano-carbon

    materials, including chemical vapour deposition (CVD)

    and arc vaporisation (3), are commonly characterized by

    high cost and the high-pure carbonaceous precursor

    gasses. In this work, the potential of using coconut shell

    which is very cheap and readily available for the

    production of graphitic nano-carbon three-dimensional

    networks was investigated.
