Abstract

Hollow structures of rutile TiO<sub>2</sub>, and especially with non-spherical shape, have rarely been reported. Herein, high-quality rutile TiO<sub>2</sub> submicroboxes have been synthesized by a facile templating method using Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> submicrocubes as removable templates. Compared to other rutile TiO<sub>2</sub> nanomaterials, the as-prepared rutile TiO<sub>2</sub> submicroboxes manifest superior lithium storage properties in terms of high specific capacity, long-term cycling stability, and excellent rate capability. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
