First Year Assessment de Venkata Sai, titulado “Nanoscale engineered electrode materials for high performance Lithium-ion batteries” – En la Sala de Seminarios a las 12:00 pm

Abstract Herein, highly ordered mesoporous pseudocapacitive electrodes for superior Li-ion storage are discussed. Hierarchical 1-D Co3O4nanorods of size ~20 nm with interfaces between the crystallites were synthesized using hydrothermal method followed by calcination. This 1D nanorods exhibited pseudocapacitive behavior with
