Vanadium oxide syntesized by Sonochemistry

Sonochemistry process was developed to obtain nanosized vanadium oxides, able to deliver high specific capacities (around 300mAh/g). V3O7.H2O with a grain size of about 6nm was obtained, leading to 50nm V2O5 particles after thermal treatment. Electrochemical measurements indicate high specific capacities (300mAh/g) and long cycle life.
