A ternary CuO-Fe2 O3 -mesocarbon microbeads (MCMB) conversion anode was characterized and combined with a high-voltage Li1.35 Ni0.48 Fe0.1 Mn1.72 O4 spinel cathode in a lithium-ion battery of relevant performance in terms of cycling stability and rate capability. The CuO-Fe2 O3 -MCMB composite was prepared by using high-energy milling, a low-cost pathway that leads to a crystalline structure and homogeneous submicrometrical morphology as revealed by XRD and electron microscopy. The anode…
