We explored bulk GDY powder as an anode material in practical LIBs to evaluate its Li storage properties. GDY powder with microporous and mesoporous structure can be prepared easily according to the cross-coupling reaction and processed to anodes of any shape. The LIBs assembled with GDY-based anodes exhibit high specific capacity, excellent rate performance as well as long cycle life. Those results indicate that GDY is an efficient material for Li storage and has the potential to be applied in energy storage applications.
