Abstract

Nanoarchitectures composed of FeF3 nanoflowers on carbon nanotube (CNT) branches (FNCB, see figure) are fabricated by functionalization of CNT surfaces with FeF3. FNCB’s improved Li-ion and electron transport makes it a candidate for applications in cathode material for lithium rechargeable batteries.
