Abstract

High-performance anodes of sodium ion batteries (SIBs) largely depends on rational architecture design and binder-free smart hybridization. Herein, we report TiC/C core/shell nanowires arrays prepared by a one-step chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method and apply it as the anode of SIBs for the first time. The conductive TiC core is intimately decorated with carbon shell. The as-obtained TiC/C nanowires are homogeneously grown on the substrate and show core/shell heterostructure and porous architecture with high electronic conductivity and reinforced stability. Owing to these merits, the TiC/C electrode displays good rate performance and outstanding cycling performance with a capacity of 135.3 mA h/g at 0.1 A/g and superior capacity retention of 90.14% after 1000 cycles at 2 A/g. The reported strategy would provide a promising way to construct binder-free arrays electrodes for sodium ion storage.
