    • Abstract


      Herein, NiCoP is synthesized by simple solvothermal route and characterized for physicochemical properties and electrochemical characteristics. X-ray diffraction (XRD) confirms that the sample is formed in a pure phase. Cyclic voltammograms and charge–discharge profiles of electrodes exhibit peaks/plateaus corresponding to lithium intercalation/de-intercalation, which is characteristic of battery behaviour. The electrochemical evaluation as an anode for lithium ion batteries are studied in the 0.05–3.00 V range. With a high discharge capacity of 468 mAh g$^{–1}$ at C/10 rate in the very beginning, excellent cycling stability and superior rate performance, NiCoP proves to be a potential candidate for anode material of lithium ion battery.
