Hydrothermal Synthesis and Electrochemical Study of VOx/CNTs Composites
Vanadium oxide/carbon nanotubes (VOx/CNTs) composites were prepared by sol-gel hydrothermal synthesis. The composites were characterized in terms of surface morphology and structure using SEM, TEM, XRD, FT-IR, respectively. The electrochemical behaviors of the composites were investigated by means of galvanostatic charge-discharge cycling. The result shows that the vanadium oxides nanotubes and carbon nanotubes contacted each other and the composites have great cycleability as well as capacity characteristics which arrived at 303.5 mAh/g in the first discharge process and 200.4 mAh/g after 50th discharge cycles.
