Triple-walled SnO2 at N-doped carbon at SnO2 nanotubes as an advanced anode material for lithium and sodium storage

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Triple-walled SnO2@N-doped carbon@SnO2 nanotubes are synthesized by a facile process with high-quality PPy nanotubes as the template. This structure has SnO2 nanoparticles closely attached to both the external and internal surfaces of N-doped carbon nanotubes, thus assuring good charge-transfer kinetics to all the SnO2 nanoparticles. Meanwhile, it doubles the loading density of SnO2 in the nanocomposite, and offers adequate room to accommodate the volume deformation of SnO2 on/in the nanotubes. All these features make the nanocomposite well fitted for lithium or sodium storage. It is found that this nanocomposite as an anode material for lithium ion batteries can deliver a reversible capacity of 935 mA h g-1 after 100 cycles at 200 mA g-1, or 658 mA h g-1 after 300 cycles at 2000 mA g-1. In the case of sodium ion batteries, its capacity could be still preserved at 492 mA h g-1 after 50 cycles at a current density of 25 mA g-1.
