Abstract

For the first time, the basic electrochemical properties and battery performances of titanium(III) oxide (Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>) are reported in bulk and nanoscale powder forms in view of their potential applications for lithium ion battery electrodes. Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> reacts electrochemically with Li<sup>+</sup> ions between 3.0 V and 0.01 V, and exhibits excellent cycling stability due to its relatively high electrical conductivity. Reactions between Li<sup>+</sup> ions and Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> molecules are shown to proceed via intercalation of the former into the latter. To increase the electrochemical reactivity of Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>, nanoscale Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> particles with and without graphene were prepared using a facile high-energy milling process. After milling, the specific discharge capacity of the nanoscale Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> with nanosheet morphology was 161 mA.h.g<sup>-1</sup> at the 300th cycle at a current density of 33 mA.g<sup>-1</sup>. By combining graphene on the Ti<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> nanosheets uniformly, the specific capacity was further improved to 248 mA.h.g<sup>-1</sup> at the 300th cycle. Furthermore, rate capability of these composite electrodes was enhanced significantly even at high current rates.
