Ti-based compounds as anode materials for Li-ion batteries

Author affiliations


Li-ion batteries are one of the most promising electrochemical power sources to be widely used in portable electronics, electric vehicles, and stationary energy storage systems. Ti-based materials have been intensively investigated as important anodes for Li-ion batteries due to their high safety and excellent cycling stability. The present work reviews the latest advances in the exploration and development of Ti-based compounds, such as Li4Ti5O12, Li2Ti3O7, TiO2-B and H2Ti3O7, as high performance anode materials for Li-ion batteries. The relationship between the preparation, composition, structure, morphology and electrochemical performance are summarized and analyzed. Further, the related advancements and challenges in practical energy applications are discussed.
