In the present study, we report the green and one-pot synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on as-prepared novel polyoxometalate {[Ni-2,Ni-5(Hpen)(4)(PW9O34)] center dot 5H(2)O} (POM) without any reducing agent and its application as improved anode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). The structure of the AgNPs involved POM (AgNPs/POM) nanocomposite was characterized by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The synthesized POM was also characterized by elemental analysis and thermal analysis. The electrochemical performances of the POM, AgNPs, and AgNPs/POM composites were measured for charge/discharge specific capacities at different current rates in CR2032 coin-type cells. The prepared AgNPs/POM composite showed a high specific gravimetric capacity of about 1760 mAh g(-1) and long-term cycle stability.
