Synthesis and Electrochemical Properties of V2O5 Nanostructures
In this seminar, I will present our recent work on the growth and electrochemical properties of single crystalline vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) nanorod and Ni-V2O5·nH2O nanocable arrays. These nanostructures were prepared by solution synthesis and template-based electrodeposition. Processing, morphology, structure and electrochemical properties of these nanostructures will be discussed. These nanostructured electrodes of vanadium pentoxide demonstrate significantly enhanced intercalation capcity and charge/discharge rate compared to the plain film electrodes, due to the high surface area and short diffusion distance offered by nanostructure.
