Monolithic Mo oxide/polypyrrole hybrid aerogels and xerogels were successfully synthesized through sol-gel methods. The PPy formed appears to be ß-substituted. A 100 fold increase in electrical conductivity was observed for the hybrids (4x 10" S/cm) as compared to the pristine M0O3 gels (2x 10" S/cm). An initial increase in Li intercalation capacity is also observed for the hybrid. The electrical conductivity and Li intercalation depend greatly on the concentration of Motrichloro alkoxide… CONTINUE READING
