Particle Size Dependence of TiO2 Electrodes in Rechargeable Lithium Battery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Particle size effects in five anatase TiO2 pellet electrodes with different particle sizes and surface areas were studied by XRD analysis, chronopotentiometry and chronoamperometry in Li/LiN(CF3SO2) + EC:DME/TiO2 cells. Nanosized TiO2 electrodes showed by 22% larger storage capacity, 50% lower overvoltage loss at the same current density, and 75% higher charge density for a given time thanmicrosized ones; electric storage capacity enhances more rapidly with decreasing particle size and increasing surface area in a nanoscale region than in a microscale region. The particle size dependence may be explained by surface morphology of electrodes and existence of structural defects or distortion in the surface layer of TiO2 nanosized particles.
