The development of lithium ion batteries (LIBs) with high-rate and high-capacity features is of great importance for next-generation portable electronics, electrical vehicles, and even electrical energy storage grid. However, the current LIB anode (graphite) still suffers from low power and energy density. To this end, the material design of anode for LIB with high rate capability and high capacity is highly demanded. Among the various material candidates towards high rate LIB application, the intercalation type of TiO2 nanomaterials has been regarded as a promising alternative to graphite due to its fast lithium ion intercalation kinetics, robust structures, ease of fabrication, and environmentally benign property.
