Polymer-Assisted Synthesis of Cu3P Hollow Spheres and Its Electrochemical Properties
Cu3P hollow microspheres have been successfully synthesized by a facile polymer-assisted hydrothermal route. The characterization results depict that the as-prepared Cu3P hollow microspheres are uniform and have the diameter of 1.0∼2.5 μm. During preparation, it is found that the polymer (PEG-10000) can form a micro-reactor in the aqueous solution and then provide a soft template for the formation of Cu3P microspheres. As an anode material for lithium ion batteries, the initial discharge capacity of the as-obtained Cu3P hollow microspheres is as high as 974.7 mA h · g–1 and relatively constant at 224 mA h · g–1 after 10th cycle.
