This research project discovers several novel solvothermal systems that lead to the facile and controllable syntheses of various TiO2-based nanostructures. The potential applications of these nanostructures, including quasi one-dimensional rod-like bipyramidal nanocrystals, one-dimensional nanowires, two-dimensional nanosheets and their derived nanocomposites, as promising candidates of anode materials for high-performance lithium-ion batteries have been well demonstrated. It is shown that enhanced physicochemical properties of TiO2-based anodes can be achieved by properly designed and fabricated nanostructures, which paves the way towards low-cost, large-scale and environmentally friendly synthesis of advanced electrode materials with high power/energy density and long life for next-generation lithium-ion batteries.
