Li-ion batteries made from LiFePO4 cathode and anatase TiO2/graphene composite anode were investigated for potential application in stationary energy storage. Fine-structured LiFePO4 was synthesized by a novel molten surfactant approach whereas anatase TiO2/graphene nanocomposite was prepared via self-assembly method. The full cell that operated at 1.6 V demonstrated negligible fade even after more than 700 cycles at measured 1 C rate. While with relative lower energy density than traditional Li-ion chemistries interested for vehicle applications, the Li-ion batteries based on LiFePO4/TiO2 combination potentially offers long life and low cost, along with safety, all which are critical to the stationary applications.
