- ... NiO layers were coated in situ onto Ni-silicide nanowires by an oxidation in air. The surface of the nanowires had been previously roughened by etching in HF solution. It is found that the roughened surface is very helpful to enhance the in situ coating ability of NiO on the nanowires. When the resulting samples were used as anodes for lithium-ion batteries, a high reversible capacity of 1.28 mA h ...

- ... 3D interconnected network Ni nanofoams with large surface area were fabricated by a template-free approach. Their pore size and skeleton diameter are 150–350 nm and 200–300 nm, respectively. The homogeneous foaming structure and the metallic ductility of the Ni nanofoams make them suitable to be used as nanostructured current collectors. The Ni/NiO nanostructures were prepared by in situ thermal o ...
