Title: Dramatically enhanced reversibility of Li 2 O in SnO 2 -based electrodes: the effect of nanostructure on high initial reversible capacity

Abstract

Suppressing the Sn coarsening in the Li 2O matrix enabled highly reversible conversion between Li 2O and SnO 2and an initial Coulombic efficiency of ~95.5% was achieved.
