Tin-core/carbon-sheath coaxial nanocables directly integrated into a reduced graphene oxide (RGO) surface are constructed by a new strategy involving a RGO-mediated procedure. The as-synthesized nanocables (see figure), with uniform diameter and high aspect ratio, are versatile and exhibit excellent lithium storage properties, as revealed by electrochemical evaluation.
