Abstract

Amorphous GeOx-coated reduced graphene oxide (rGO) balls with sandwich structure are prepared via a spray-pyrolysis process using polystyrene (PS) nanobeads as sacrificial templates. This sandwich structure is formed by uniformly coating the exterior and interior of few-layer rGO with amorphous GeOx layers. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy analysis reveals a Ge:O stoichiometry ratio of 1:1.7. The amorphous GeOx-coated rGO balls with sandwich structure have low charge-transfer resistance and fast Li+-ion diffusion rate. For example, at a current density of 2 A g-1, the GeOx-coated rGO balls with sandwich and filled structures and the commercial GeO2 powders exhibit initial charge capacities of 795, 651, and 634 mA h g-1, respectively; the corresponding 700th-cycle charge capacities are 758, 579, and 361 mA h g-1. In addition, at a current density of 5 A g-1, the rGO balls with sandwich structure have a 1600th-cycle reversible charge capacity of 629 mA h g-1 and a corresponding capacity retention of 90.7%, as measured from the maximum reversible capacity at the 100th cycle. (Chemical Equation Presented).
