I was born and grew up in China. The time when I step in Australia, I felt everything is interesting. When I started my research on perovskite, I found it even more exciting!!!!

I like stay fresh and keep my head clear. camping and walking around in the lab are favourite activities

PINBOARD SUMMARY

Controlling the growth of a thin Al2O3 can be readily tuned on the surface for an optimized battery.

Forming uniform metal oxide nanocoatings is a wellknown challenge in the construction of core–shell type nanomaterials. Herein, by using buffer solution as a specific reaction medium, we demonstrate the possibility to grow thin nanoshells of metal oxides, typically Al2O3, on different kinds of core materials, forming a uniform surface-coating layer with thicknesses achieving one nanometer precision. The application of this methodology for the surface modification of LiCoO2 shows that a thin nanoshell of Al2O3 can be readily tuned on the surface for an optimized battery performance.
