Abstract

original image

Spare capacity: A SnO2/graphene nanocomposite is fabricated by a novel solvothermal method (see picture). The nanocomposite exhibits a reversible lithium storage capacity of 838 mAh g−1 in the first cycle and improved cyclability as an anode material for lithium-ion batteries.
