Title: Multi-Electron Transfer Enabled by Topotactic Reaction in Magnetite

Abstract

A bottleneck for the large-scale application of today’s batteries is low lithium storage capacity, largely due to the use of intercalation-type electrodes that allow one or less electron transfer per redox center. An appealing alternative is multi-electron transfer electrodes, offering excess capacity through conversion reaction; however, such type of electrodes suffer from low cyclability, which has been mostly attributed to the collapse of the host upon conversion.
