  • Tubules of 200 nm outer diameter spinel were prepared by thermal decomposition of an aqueous solution containing lithium nitrate and manganese nitrate at 1:2 molar ratio using a nanoporous alumina membrane as a template
  • The polypyrrole‐coated tubule electrodes exhibited higher capacities than the polypyrrole‐coated thin‐film electrode prepared under the same conditions, except for the use of the alumina membrane; it was ca. 2.5 times greater at and became ca. 12 times greater with an increase in current density to
  • The observed high capacity of the tubule electrode seems to have resulted from two kinds of effects: a decrease in real current density of high specific surface area at the tubule electrode and a decrease in thickness of solid phase for ions to diffuse through during the charging and discharging reactions
