Facile preparation of V2O3/carbon fiber composite and its application for long-term performance lithium-ion batteries

Abstract

In the present work, the vanadium-trioxide/carbon-nanofiber composite (V2O3/CNF), integrated with different content of V2O3 was synthesized through a simple approach. After a simple combined electrospinning and carbonization process, V2O3 nanoparticles were successfully distributed through carbon fibers. Due to the synergistic effect between V2O3 and carbon, V2O3/CNF as an anode of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) exhibits high reversible capacity and excellent long-term cycling stability. The content of V2O3 is of great importance to the electrochemical performance. The V2O3/CNF with the optimized content of V2O3 (57 wt%) shows a capacity of 544 mAh g-1 at a current density of 0.5 A g-1 after 500 cycles. More importantly, a capacity of 204 mAh g-1 at a high current density of 4 A g-1 can be retained after 1000 cycles.
