Protein-inspired synthesis of SnO2 nanocrystals with controlled carbon nanocoating as anode materials for lithium-ion battery

Author affiliations

Abstract

A protein-inspired facile approach to synthesise carbon-coated SnO2 nanocrystals (NCs) is presented. The carbon coating content could be readily tuned by adjusting the pH value of the reaction solution. The obtained carbon-coated SnO2 NCs showed a markedly improved lithium storage ability.
