The anode material Fe2O3/C composite is prepared by a solid phase method. The as-obtained Fe2O3/C composite was investigated by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and electrochemical measurements. XRD results indicate the presence of hematite. SEM observations shows nano particals of Fe2O3/C composite and illustrate the good combination of Fe2O3 and carbon, Fe2O3 was well enwrapped by carbon. The electrochemical performance of the composite is good. In the potential range of 3.00–0.01 V, it delivers initial charge capacity of 314.6 mAh g-1 at 100 mA g−1, and 83.8% of initial capacity is retained even after 20 cycles. Meanwhile, the role of carbon was also discussed. The results indicate that it could be used as a promising anode material for Li-ion batteries.
