VOPO4 nanosheets as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries

Author affiliations

Abstract

VOPO4 nanosheets are successfully synthesized using a hydrothermal method followed by calcination. The XRD results reveal that obtained products are crystallized in the orthorhombic VOPO4 phase. SEM and TEM images demonstrate that VOPO4 products possess unique nanosheet morphology. Electrochemical tests show that the VOPO4 nanosheets exhibit an excellent electrochemical performance as anode materials. They can deliver an initial discharge capacity of 1356 mA h gāˆ’1 at 0.1 C, and possess a favorable capacity at rates of 0.2, 1, and 2 C. The synthesized VOPO4 can be used as a good anode material; furthermore, the nanosheet structure can effectively improve the electrochemical performance of this material.
