Crystalline low agglomerated tungsten diselenide (WSe2)
nanoparticles were successfully produced by the aerosol synthesis
method. The particle size and morphology were changed by process
parameters. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction and
high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. The
WSe2 nanoparticle morphology varies from a spherical shape to
flake-like, layered structures. Usually, as-prepared particles consist
of 5–7 single layers of WSe2. These as-synthesized WSe2
nanoparticles were used as anodes to assemble lithium-ion
batteries. A high reversible capacity and very stable cycle
performance can be obtained, implying that these WSe2
nanostructures could provide new types of electrode materials for
rechargeable Li-ion batteries.
Founded in 1887, the Zeitschrift für Physikalische Chemie covers the main developments in physical chemistry, placing with an emphasis on experimental research. It represents a combination ofdiscusses reaction kinetics and spectroscopy, surface research and electrochemistry, thermodynamics and the structure analysis of matter in its various conditions, among other topics.
