Lithium trivanadate (Li 1+xV 3O 8) nanorods have been synthesized by the simple polymer precursor route using the polymer, polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) as the complexing agent. Thermal behavior of the precursor has been studied by the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential thermal analysis (DTA) techniques. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) studies confirm the formation of the compound. High resolution scanning electron microscopy (HRSEM) analysis reveals the synthesized Li 1.2V 3O 8 particles to be nanorods with an average diameter of 50 nm.
