made in the form of a slurry using a simple solution mixture consisting of propylene carbonate (PC) and acetone (AC) and then heat treated. Cycle life study of the pristine composite and heat treated organic slurry composite showed the charge capacity values as 318 and 500 mAh g�1, respectively at 100th cycle. Analysis of change of delithiation capacity with cycling and delithiation current between 0.3 and 0.6 V from cyclic voltammogram (CV) along with scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) of the electrodes/ composites leads to conclude thermal processing of the organic slurry treated pristine composite converts dispersed active materials of the pristine composite into a compact structure trapped/wrapped with carbon particles (Cx, x varies from 1 to 3) providing apparently a resistor like behaviour and makes the anode deliver a stable reversible capacity with cycling.
