To inhibit the aggregation of TiO2 nanoparticles and to improve the electrochemical kinetics of TiO2 electrode, a hybrid material of ultrasmall TiO2 nanoparticles in situ grown on rGO nanosheets was obtained by ultraphonic and reflux methods. The size of the TiO2 particles was controlled about 10 nm, and these particles were evenly distributed across the rGO nanosheets. When used for the anode of a sodium ion battery, the electrochemical performance of this hybrid TiO2@rGO was much improved. A capacity of 186.6 mAh g–1 was obtained after 100 cycles at 0.1 A g–1, and 112.2 mAh g–1 could be maintained at 1.0 A g–1, showing a high capacity and good rate capability. On the basis of the analysis of cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), the achieved excellent electrochemical performance was mainly attributed to the synergetic effect of well-dispersed ultrasmall TiO2 nanoparticles and conductive graphene network and the improved electrochemical kinetics. The superior electrochemical performance of this hybrid material on lithium storage further confirmed the positive effect of rGO.
