2_06b/2012Mesoporous Carbon: Li4Ti5O12 Nanoparticles Embedded in a Mesoporous Carbon Matrix as a Superior Anode Material for High Rate Lithium Ion Batteries (Adv. Energy Mater. 6/2012)

A mesoporous Li4Ti5O12/C nanocomposite consisting of nanocrystals confined in a micrometer-sized porous carbon foam is successfully fabricated using a nanocasting technique described on page 691 by X. G. Zhang, G. Z. Cao, and coworkers. This mesoporous Li4Ti5O12/C nanocomposite delivers an exceptionally high rate capacity and excellent cycling performance in comparison to bulk Li4Ti5O12. This important finding shows that ‘meso-nano’ composites are clearly useful candidates for energy storage, enabling a new class of lithiumion batteries for large-scale applications.
