The selection and assembly of materials are central issues in the development of smaller, more flexible batteries. Cobalt oxide has shown excellent electrochemical cycling properties and is thus under consideration as an electrode for advanced lithium batteries. We used viruses to synthesize and assemble nanowires of cobalt oxide at room temperature. By(More)

Layered-layered composite oxides of the form xLi2MnO3·(1-x) LiMO2 (M = Mn, Co, Ni) have received much attention as candidate cathode materials for lithium ion batteries due to their high specific capacity (>250mAh/g) and wide operating voltage range of 2.0-4.8 V. However, the cathode materials of this class generally exhibit large capacity fade upon cycling(More)
