Full charge ahead: Hydrothermal carbonization of glucose in the presence of Si nanoparticles yields a Si@SiOx/C nanocomposite that has high reversible lithium-storage capacity, excellent cycling performance, and high rate capability. This material shows promise as an anode material in lithium-ion batteries.
