TiO2@C nanospheres are synthesized through annealing a mixture of tetrabutyl titanate and oleic acid, as the titanium and carbon source, respectively. The as-synthesized TiO2@C with higher carbon content presents a superior specific capacity (286.5 mA h g-1 at 100 mA g-1 after 200 cycles) and higher rate performance (148 mA h g-1 at 500 mA g-1), when tested as the anode material for lithium ion batteries. The as-synthesized TiO2@C nanospheres are promising anode materials for next-generation LIBs.
