Within the work, an influence of manganese dopant on electrochemical performance of anatase titanium dioxide (Mn/Ti = 0.05; 0.1; 0.2) had been investigated. It was established that incorporation of Mn3+ into the TiO2 lattice results in the formation of Ti1 − xMnxO2 solid solution and increased anatase unit cell volume from 136.41 Å3 (undoped sample) to 137.25 Å3 (Mn/Ti = 0.05). The conductivity of doped TiO2 rises up to two orders in magnitude. Ti0.95Mn0.05O2 electrode delivers a capacity of 186 mA⋅h/g after 30 charge/discharge cycles at C/10, whereas the undoped TiO2 gives only 87 mA⋅h/g. At a high current rate of 2С the doped TiO2 (Mn/Ti = 0.05) maintains a reversible capacity of about 121 mA⋅h/g.
