In this paper the preparation, the morphology, the structure and the electrochemical performance of carbon coated TiO2produced by using Tyzor®-LA as a precursor have been studied by using SEM, XRD and electrochemical methods. The electrochemical methods included low rate cycling, cycling at C-rate and cycling at different rates. At the same time the physical and electrochemical properties of LiFePO4were investigated by using the same methods. Lithium-ion batteries were prepared by sandwiching a glass fiber between a TiO2electrode used as the anode and a LiFePO4electrode used as the cathode and tested to evaluate cell performance. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
