Abstract

In this work, we report an interesting synthesis of unusual rutile TiO 2 nanosheets with exposed high-energy (001) facets, which form hierarchical microspheres that closely resemble the natural "desert rose". These high-energy (001) surfaces are stabilized by amorphous molybdenum trioxide (MoO3), which is homogeneously dispersed on the TiO2 nanosheets. The as-prepared unique TiO2-MoO 3 hybrid structure exhibits improved lithium storage capabilities. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
