KGaA, Weinheim We demonstrate a unique synthetic route for oxygen-deficient mesoporous TiOxby a redox–transmetalation process by using Zn metal as the reducing agent. The as-obtained materials have significantly enhanced electronic conductivity; 20 times higher than that of as-synthesized TiO2material. Moreover, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and galvanostatic intermittent titration technique (GITT) measurements are performed to validate the low charge carrier resistance of the oxygen-deficient TiOx. The resulting oxygen-deficient TiOxbattery anode exhibits a high reversible capacity (∼180 mA h g−1at a discharge/charge rate of 1 C/1 C after 400 cycles) and an excellent rate capability (∼90 mA h g−1even at a rate of 10 C). Also, the full cell, which is coupled with a LiCoO2cathode material, exhibits an outstanding rate capability (>75 mA h g−1at a rate of 3.0 C) and maintains a reversible capacity of over 100 mA h g−1at a discharge/charge of 1 C/1 C for 300 cycles.
