A broad pore size distribution mesoporous SnO 2 as anode for lithium-ion batteries

Shiva, Konda; Mangalampalli, S.R.N. Kiran; Ramamurty, U; Asokan, S; Bhattacharyya, A.J.


We demonstrate here that mesoporous tin dioxide (abbreviated M-SnO2) with a broad pore size distribution can be a prospective anode in lithium-ion batteries. M-SnO2 with pore size ranging between 2 and 7.5 nm was synthesized using a hydrothermal procedure involving two different surfactants of slightly different sizes, and characterized. The irreversible capacity loss that occurs during the first discharge and charge cycle is 890 mAh g-1, which is smaller than the 1,010-mAh g-1 loss recorded...[Show more]
