Reports from Northeastern University Add New Data to Findings in Nanocomposites (SnO2-CuO/graphene nanocomposites for high performance Li-ion battery anodes)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- New research on Nanocomposites is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Shenyang, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "The nanocomposites of SnO2-CuO/graphene are synthesized via a two-step method. CuO nanorods are firstly uniformly loaded on the graphene nanosheets, and then SnO2 nanoparticles are coated on CuO nanorods."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Northeastern University, "SnO2-CuO/graphene nanocomposites exhibit high cyclability and capacity as anode of Li-ion battery. After 30 cycles, the capacity can maintain at 584 mAh g(-1) at 0.1C rate (10 h per half cycle). The high performance can be ascribed to the synergistic effect among SnO2 nanoparticles, CuO nanorods and graphene nanosheets."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The results manifest that the nanocomposites of SnO2-CuO/graphene are very suitable for Li-ion battery anodes."
