Abstract

original image

On page 1484, Guozhong Cao, Xiaogang Zhang, and co-workers describe a general strategy for in situ growth of lithium metal oxide nanocrystals on carbon textiles as flexible, self-supported electrodes for lithium-ion batteries. The unique lithium metal oxide/carbon textile electrodes have ultrahigh rate capability and a significantly enhanced cycling performance, which makes them highly attractive for high-power, flexible, lithiumion batteries.
