The TiO2@MWNTs nanocomposites have been prepared by a simple one-step solvothermal method using low-cost TiOSO4 as the raw material in the presence of MWNTs.X-ray diffraction(XRD), scan electron microscopy(SEM),transmission electron microscopy(TEM),nitrogen adsorption-desorption and thermogravimetric-differential scanning calorimeter(TG-DSC)analysis were performed to characterize the structures and morphologies of the TiO2@MWNTs composites.Their lithium storage properties were investigated with galvanostatic charge/discharge measurements when the composites was used as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries(LIBs).The nitrogen adsorption-desorption curve and pore size distribution verified that the TiO2@MWNTs nanocomposites had rich hierarchical pores and large specific surface area.Compared with pristine TiO2,these TiO2@MWNTs nanocomposites exhibited much higher rate capability and even better capacity retention.The reversible capacity of the nanocomposites electrode is up to 200 mAh· g-1 and remain at 182 mAh· g-1 at 1 C after 100 cycles.The reversible capacity is about 100 mAh· g-1 even at the high rate of 10 C.
