Abstract

original image

The new concept of quasi-intercalation and the method of facile amorphization are demonstrated for layered orthorhombic ZnSb, orthorhombic-black P and rhombohedral-grey As. These anode materials showed excellent electrochemical properties. Application of this concept and method in layered materials will be a breakthrough for realization and mass production of next generation lithium ion batteries.
