Abstract

Binder-free SnFe2O4–submillimetre (hundreds of micrometres)-sized reduced graphene oxide (SnFe2O4–srGO) hybrid films were synthesized through electrophoretic deposition and subsequent carbonization treatment. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy results revealed that SnFe2O4–srGO hybrid films exhibit both horizontal and vertical channels. SnFe2O4–srGO hybrid films were used as binder-free anodes for lithium ion half-cells and revealed a high capacity of ~1018.5 mA h g−1 at 0.1 A g−1 after 200 cycles. During rate performance tests, a high capacity of 464.1 mA h g−1 (~61.2 % retention) was maintained at a current density of 4 A g−1, indicating an excellent structural stability of SnFe2O4–srGO hybrid films at high current densities.
