Co3O4 mesoporous nanosheets (MNSs) were successfully synthesized by a facile direct precipitation method and subsequent annealing process. When used as the anode materials of Li-ion batteries, the as-prepared sample delivered reasonable capacity, good cycling stability and rate capability, which may be attributed to the mesoporous structural nature. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.
