Ultrafine Sb nanocrystals, uniformly distributed in a carbon matrix with a microspherical morphology, were synthesized by one-pot spray pyrolysis. The Sb-carbon composite microspheres exhibited good Na-storage properties with stable cyclability, a capacity retention of 90% over 100 cycles, and good rate performance.
