The main disadvantage for sodium titanate as an anode material for LIBs is its low electronic conductivity, resulting in poor rate capability. Several approaches have been taken in an attempt to improve the electronic conductivity of sodium/lithium titanate, such as electronic material coating/mixing, ionic doping, comminution, etc.; but as of yet there has been no uniform carbon coating reported on sodium titanate for LIBs. In this work, we detail a facile technique to create uniform thin carbon coating layers on Na2Ti6O13 nanowires (NTO-C). In addition, we also explored self-doped Ti3+ on carbon coated Na2Ti6O13 nanowires (NTO-Ch) in an effort to further improve its electronic conductivity. The detailed results of the synthesis, characterization, and electrochemical performance of the NTO-based materials (NTO, NTO-C and NTO-Ch) will be presented.
