Nanophase MnV2O4 particles as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries
© 2020 Elsevier B.V. Developing electrode materials with high energy and power densities holds the key for satisfying the urgent demand for energy storage. Addressing at this issue, we herein report a nanophase MnV2O4 material as a novel anode material for lithium-ion batteries. Nanoscale V2O3 precursor was employed as raw material and successfully limited the diameter of the MnV2O4 particles. Nanoscale MnV2O4 with carbon coating behaves an ideal electrochemical performance, and its initial capacity and Coulombic efficiency are 736.9 mAh g−1 under 50 mA g−1 and of 83.17%, respectively. Besides, the MnV2O4 also shows the high lithium-ion storage capacity and excellent cycling stability under high current density, indicating potential application in energy storage devices.
