The synthesis and electrochemical characteristics of nanomaterials for high-capacity lithium batteries are analyzed. α-CuV2O6 nanowires were obtained by the hydrothermal method. The mechanism of lithium intercalation and the electrochemical characteristics of α-CuV2O6 nanomaterials have been studied. The results show that α-CuV2O6 nanomaterials have the advantages of large surface area and short path of solid-state diffusion of lithium ions, which can greatly improve the electrochemical performance. At a current density of 20 mA/g, the specific discharge capacity of α-CuV2O6 nanomaterials can reach 514 mAh/g, and the apparent activation ability of the TV output reaction can reach 39.3 kJ/mol, which is much better than that of submicron wires and micron rods with particles of α-CuV2O6 nanomaterials. Therefore, α-CuV2O6 nanomaterials exhibit more efficient electrochemical performance in lithium primary batteries and have great development prospects.
