Nano-sized Fe2O3-loaded carbon material was prepared by loading Fe2O3 on carbon using various carbonaceous materials. Carbonaceous materials strongly affected the electrochemical behavior of nano-sized Fe2O3-loaded carbon. In addition, the binder content also significantly affected the cycle performance of nano-sized Fe2O3-loaded carbon. The content of binder depended on the type of carbon used. In the optimal condition for binder content, nano-carbons such as acetylene black (AB), tubular carbon nanofibers (CNF), and platelet CNF provided larger capacities than graphite, and tubular CNF showed the greatest capacity after long-term cycling.
