Title: Surfactant-assisted synthesis and electrochemical performances of Cu{sub 3}P dendrites

Abstract

Highlights: ► Dendrite-like Cu{sub 3}P microstructures have been synthesized by a low-temperature method. ► The surfactant SDS was used as template. ► The as-obtained Cu{sub 3}P dendrites exhibit a high first discharge capacity. -- Abstract: Well-defined Cu{sub 3}P hierarchical dendrites were successfully synthesized by a facile and effective surfactant-assisted hydrothermal approach. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) indicated that the as-obtained Cu{sub 3}P had a well-crystallized hexagonal phase and consisted of a wealth of Cu{sub 3}P dendritic microstructures. A surfactant-assisted growth accompanied by the Ostwald ripening process was proposed for the formation. As anode materials for lithium ion batteries, the electrochemical property of the Cu{sub 3}P dendrites was also examined. The results showed that the initial discharge capacity of the Cu{sub 3}P dendrites exceeded 1300 mA h/g and it still kept at 291 mA h/g after 20 cycles, which might be related to the size of Cu{sub 3}P particles and their assembly structure.
