A facile thermal decomposing method has been developed for the fabrication of CoxP nanostructures with controlled size, phase and shape (e.g. Co2P rod and spheres, CoP hollow and solid particles). An amorphous carbon layer could be introduced by the carbonization of organic surfactants from the precursors. The electrochemical performance of CoP hollow and solid nanoparticles as anode materials has been investigated and the CoP hollow nanoparticle with carbon coating layer depicts good capacity retention and high rate capability (e.g. specific capacity of 630 mAh g-1 at 0.2 C after 100 cycles, and a reversible capacity of 256 mAh g-1 can be achieved at a high current rate of 5 C).
