- ... Carbon nanofibers (CNFs) were deposited on Cu foam by a floating catalyst method, and a Mn₃O₄ layer was then coated onto the deposited CNFs via a hydrothermal process based on the redox reaction of carbon and potassium permanganate. The obtained architecture of Mn₃O₄-coated CNFs (CNFs@Mn₃O₄) on Cu foam was directly used as an anode for lithium-ion batteries without using any binder or conducting a ...
