Abstract The electrochemical reaction mechanism of ZnO is investigated to understand its Li insertion/extraction behavior using ex situ X-ray diffraction, extended X-ray absorption fine structure, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. Based on these analyses, an interesting partial recombination reaction of ZnO is discovered, which demonstrates that Li 2 O formed during Li insertion is partially reversible. Additionally, we discover that the control of the partial recombination… CONTINUE READING
