Abstract

original image

The nanoCable Guy: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs)@SnO2@carbon have been fabricated using a simple procedure. The material exhibits greatly enhanced lithium-storage capacities and excellent cycling performance over extended cycles owing to their unique structural configuration and chemical composition.
