Electrospun three-dimensional V4Nb18O55 nanofibers for advanced lithium uptake

Author affiliations

Abstract

Herein, V4Nb18O55 nanofibers were prepared via a homemade electrospinning route and applied as anode hosts for possible lithium uptake in rechargeable batteries. The as-obtained V4Nb18O55 products are porous nanofibers with a three-dimensional framework built from ultrafine nanoparticles. Due to their specific hierarchical structure, the V4Nb18O55 nanofibers exhibit the lithium uptake capacity of 221 mA h gāˆ’1, which is much higher than that of the widely reported Li4Ti5O12; moreover, the V4Nb18O55 nanofibers reveal outstanding rate properties for high-power secondary batteries with the specific uptake capacity of 107 mA h gāˆ’1 at 8C.
