The study made use of instruments (elemental analysis, XRD, and TEM) in the Center for Instruments Analysis of Nagasaki University. This work was partly supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, Sports, and Technology of Japan, and by PRESTO of Japan Science and Technology Corporation.

A mesoporous nanocomposite of TiO2 and cut single-walled carbon nanotubes (c-SWNTs) is successfully synthesized by a bicontinuous microemulsion-aided process. The nanocomposite electrode (see Figure) shows a high capacity even at high charging–discharging rates due to the presence of nanochannels for both ion and electron transport.
