Abstract

Yolk-shell MoO3 microspheres are prepared by a two-step process in which molybdenum oxide-carbon (MoOx-C) composite microspheres are first obtained by spray pyrolysis, followed by combustion at 400C in air. The yolk-shell microspheres exhibit excellent electrochemical properties and structural stability. Great eggs from fire: Yolk-shell structured MoO 3 microspheres are prepared in a facile two-step process and used as anode material for Li-ion batteries. In the two-step preparation, molybdenum oxide-carbon (MoOx-C) composite microspheres are first obtained by spray pyrolysis. Combustion at 400C in air yields the core@void@shell structures.
