The application of amphoteric metal compounds is one of the most important research topics on the electrode materials synthesis for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with the aspect of value-added application of amphoteric metal compounds. In order to prepare amphoteric metal compounds electrodes with high performance for LIBs, in this thesis, much attention has been paid on the investigation of basic issues, including morphology design, crystal structure manipulation, structure-effect relationship, electrochemical properties evaluation and the degradation mechanism. Amphoteric metals of vanadium, titanium and cobalt are selected and focused in the form of their oxides, compounds and fluorides. Specifically, advanced electrode materials, such as Magneli-type V4O7 cathode, sodium-rich NaxV3O8 cathode, sodium vanadate/graphene nanocomposite anode, TiO2/VO2-impregnated hollow carbon nanofibrous anode and conversion-type cobalt(II) fluoride/carbon nanotube composite cathode, have been developed in this study and systematically investigated with their capability of lithium-ion storage. The typical strategy for the cell performance improvement has been extabilished on the basis of 3D structure design, self-assembly behavior analysis, lithiation/delithiation process explanation, electrochemical property evaluation and post-motern investigation on the physichemical characteristics of formed SEI surface and interface. Therefore, upgradation on both the reversibility of electrode reaction and cycle stability was revealed with the benchmark on explaining the intrinsic degradation mechanism, effectively intensifying the surface or interface stability and re-building the electrolyte-electrode system with higher compatibility. The main achievement is summarized as following:(1) The Eg/water binary solvothermal system has been developed to controllably prepare vanadium oxide with different crystal structure and architecture. In this study, NH4VO3 was selected as the precursor. By controlling the ratio between Eg and water, the reducibility and self-assembly behavior of the solvothermal media was varied and able to prepare different products in the form of 3D VO2(B) microsphere, V4O7 nanocross and amorphous microsphere and ect. In particular, the first success of preparing V4O7 through solvothermal system was revealed and first investigation of V4O7 with its lithium-ion storage capability was reported. By comparison with conventional V2O5 and VO2(B) material, V4O7 exhibited much improved cycle stability especially under high rate (the reversible capacity of 300 mA h g-1 and 95 % capacity retention after 100 cycles).(2) The cycle stability of NaxV3O8 was investigated with different amount of alkali ioninsertion (the value of X in the NaxV3O8). In this study, sol-gel method with subsequent thermal treatment was applied to prepared specific NaxV3O8-type cathode material (X=0.55 and 0.95, repectively). Effect of crystal defect was emphasized on the lithium-ion storage properties of reversible capacity, cycle stability, lithiation/delithiation mechanism for both sodium-defect Na0.55V3O8 and sodium-rich Na0.95V3O8. By sharp comparison, sodium-rich Na0.95V3O8 showed higher structure stability upon lithium-ion insertion and therefore gave rise to much lower electrochemical resistance with good rate performance and high reversible capacity (301 mA h g-1). On the contrary, the obvious amorphorism of sodium-defect Na0.55V3O8 resulted in poor cell performance during cycling. (3) Sodium vanadate/graphene nanocomposite was developed and for the first time, applied as conversion-type anode material for LIBs. In this part, the self-assembly behavior of sodium vanadate precursor on the graphene nanoflakes was systematically investigated and carefully explained through hydrothermal process. By controlling the reaction time and temperature, novel structure of dendritic b-NaV6O15 and a-NaV2O5 was originally grown along the surface of graphene nanoflakes with the highly-branched and interconnected characteristic. Such architecture allowed significant feature of buffering the structure expansion during lithium-ion conversion, shortening the lithium ion diffusion paths and satisfacting the fast electron transfer. As a result, high reversible capacity (789 mA h g-1) was achieved with 96 % capacity retention after 1000 cycles. (4) The protocol of co-axial electrospinning technique was proposed to fabricate TiO2/VO2-impregnated hollow carbon nanofibrous anode with high throughput. The mass loading of active materials approached 60 %, a significant improvement of the low mass loading issue derived from current surface modification technique. The prepared nanofibrous anode enabled hierarchical porous structure. The pores involved were categorized as: nano-size space by the interconnection of nanofibers, the hollow cavity of single nanofiber and the meso-pores on the shell layer of single nanofiber. These pores facilitated fast electrolyte penetration, lihthium-ion insertion and electron transfer, allowing high rate performance and excellent cycle stability with 94 % capacity retention after 1000 cycles under extremely high rate of 20 C. Based on the investigation on electrochemical properties, the capacitance-intercalation mechanism for electron storage was explained. (5) The first reversible lithium-ion storage with conversion-type CoF2(II) was fulfilled and the new mechanism for the capacity degradation was proposed and largely optimized. In this part, CoF2(II) nanoparticles was pre-coated on the surface of carbon nanotubes fabric (CNTs). The CoF2(II)/CNTs nanocomposite was set as the structural benchmark to evaluate the capability of SEI formation of different electrodes. To be specific, the dissolution of CoF2 was revealed with the EC/DMC/DEC ternary electrolyte. It indicated that the imcompleted SEI failed to offer sufficient protection to the active materials. On the contrary, the optimization of electrolyte suggested the high performance of cell with binary FEC/EMC electrolyte, giving rise to reversible 350 mA h g-1 and over 50 % capacity retention after 10,000 cycles under 1 A g-1, which was the state-of-the-art performance of CoF2(II) so far. The investigation of FEC/EMC-derived SEI demonstrated a better protection due to its better physical and chemical properties.
