Data on Microscopy Reported by Researchers at China Jiliang University

February 21, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Research findings on Microscopy are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Hangzhou, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Porous TiO2 nanowire microspheres with greatly decreasing agglomeration were successfully prepared by spray drying of hydrothermal reaction suspension, followed by calcination at 350 degrees C. The as-obtained nanowire microspheres with TiO2-B structure reach an initial discharge capacity 210 mAh g(-1) with an irreversible capacity 25 mAh g(-1) at a current density of 20 mA g(-1)."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from China Jiliang University, "For the 450 degrees C-calcined one with anatase TiO2 crystal structure, the initial discharge capacity is 245 mAh g(-1) but with a much higher irreversible capacity of 80 mAh g(-1)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The hierarchical porous structure in the 350 degrees C-calcined TiO2 nanowire microspheres collapsed at 450 degrees C, annihilating the main benefit of nanostructuring. Microsc. Res. Tech. 77:170-175, 2014."
