Ternary metal oxides have been receiving wide attention in electrochemical energy storage due to their rich redox reactions and tuneable conductivity. We present a simple solution-based method to prepare a 3D interconnected porous network of ternary metal oxide (CoMoO4 and ZnCo2O4) nanostructures onmacroporous nickel foam. The open-structured networks with different degrees of porosity endow them with high surface areas of electro-active sites. The Li ion storage properties of both anodes are investigated. High rate capability and long term cycling stability are achieved for both systems.
