Equilibrium lithium transport between nanocrystalline phases in intercalated TiO2 anatase

Microcrystalline TiO2 with an anatase crystal structure is used as an anode material for lithium rechargeable batteries, and also as a material for electrochromic and solar-cell devices. When intercalated with lithium, as required for battery applications, TiO2 anatase undergoes spontaneous phase separation into lithium-poor (Li0.01TiO2) and lithium-rich… CONTINUE READING
