Abstract: Controllable synthesis of TiO2 nanostructures with conformal and ultrathin graphitic carbon coating is critically desirable for new anode material development for Li-ion batteries. In this study, TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) synthesized by a facile solgel method were encapsulated in graphene nanosheets (GNS) to improve the electrochemical performance. The encapsulation was facilitated by electrostatic interaction between the positively charged, silane decorated TiO2 surface and the negatively charged graphene oxi…
