Sol-gel nanoglues for an organic binder-free TiO2 nanofiber anode for lithium ion batteries.

A TiO2 nanofiber anode is glued using a sol-gel reaction to improve cycle performance and Coulombic efficiencies. The hydrolysis-condensation process produces TiO2 nanoglues consisting of TiO2 nanoparticles, providing strong adhesion between nanofibers and the current collector as well as between nanofibers, rendering favourable transporting properties of… CONTINUE READING
