Title: Titanates and Their Derivatives: New Electrode Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage

 

Abstract: 

Nanostructured titanates were synthesized and then used as the electrode materials for energy conversion and storage. These material have a large surface area and can adsorb dye molecular sufficiently, resulting in increase of efficiency for dye-sensitized solar cells. As an electrode for fabricating an asymmetric supercapacitor, it exhibited high power and energy density simultaneously.  On the other hand, these titanates were used as a precursor and TiO2 mesocrystals with different crystal phases and morphologies can be obtained.  Used as anode materials for Li-ion intercalation reaction, they displayed large capacity, excellent cycling stability and high-rate performance.
