Vanadium-Doped Bronze Titanium Dioxide as Anode Material for Lithium-ion Batteries with Enchanced Cycleability and Rate Performance

Nanotubes of bronze titanium dioxide (TiO2(B)) doped with vanadium were synthesized through hydrothermal reaction. The obtained material possesses mesoporous structure and large specific surface area of 180 m2/g. It was found that the incorporation of vanadium into TiO2(B) lattice increases the volume of a unit cell. Additionally, the conductivity rose up to three orders of magnitude for doped titanium dioxide reaching the value of 1.70 ? 10 ? 8 S/cm.
