Abstract

original image

A fast and soft option! A fast and soft ionic-liquid synthesis route is presented to obtain monophasic TiO2(B) nanoparticles (see figure). The material presents interesting electrochemical properties when used as the negative electrode (charge capacity, reversibility, stability, and low temperature performance) in Li batteries.
