Abstract

Charging clusters: A hybrid of polyoxometalate (POM) molecules individually adsorbed onto the surfaces of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) can be used as a cathode-active material in rechargeable lithium batteries. This POM/SWNT battery exhibited a very high capacity (>300 Ahkg-1) with a short charging/discharging time (<2 h).
