Zheng, H., Wang, S., Wang, J., Wang, J., Li, L., Yang, Y., Feng, C. & Sun, Z. (2015). 3D Fe2(MoO4)3 microspheres with nanosheet constituents as high-capacity anode materials for lithium-ion batteries. Journal of Nanoparticle Research, 17 (11), 449-1-449-8.


Three-dimensional (3D) Fe2(MoO4)3 microspheres with ultrathin nanosheet constituents are first synthesized as anode materials for the lithium-ion battery. It is interesting that the single-crystalline nanosheets allow rapid electron/ion transport on the inside, and the high porosity ensures fast diffusion of liquid electrolyte in energy storage applications. The electrochemical properties of Fe2(MoO4)3 as anode demonstrates that 3D Fe2(MoO4)3 microspheres deliver an initial capacity of 1855 mAh/g at a current density of 100 mA/g. Particularly, when the current density is increased to 800 mA/g, the reversible capacity of Fe2(MoO4)3 anode still arrived at 456 mAh/g over 50 cycles. The large and reversible capacities and stable charge-discharge cycling performance indicate that Fe2(MoO4)3 is a promising anode material for lithium battery applications.
