Mesoporous titania nanotubes with tunable dimension have been fabricated within the pores of alumina membranes by a simple sol-gel templating method. The 3D network structures of these mesoporous nanotubes (see figure) can provide both electron pathway and lithium ion pathway which benefit their applications in a high rate rechargeable lithium battery.
