7_07b/2014Back Cover: Peapod-Like Composite with Nickel Phosphide Nanoparticles Encapsulated in Carbon Fibers as Enhanced Anode for Li-Ion Batteries (ChemSusChem 7/2014)

The Back Cover picture shows the unique evolution of the layered precursor of hydrated ammonia nickel phosphate nanorod to the peapod-like nanocomposite with nickel phosphide nanoparticles tightly encapsulated in carbon nanofibers. The transformation relies on glucose molecules as the carbon source and reductive reagent during the hydrothermal reaction and the high-temperature calcinations in inert atmosphere, respectively. The obtained peapod-like nanocomposite has prominent benefits for secondary Li storage, which can be attributed to the unique peapod nanostructure. The picture also shows the badge of Chongqing University in the center, which was founded in 1929 which has been substantially supported by the Chinese central government under the “985” and “211” educational schemes. More details can be found in the Full Paper by Wang et al. on page 2000 (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201301394).
