Free-standing and flexible NiMoO4 nanorods/reduced graphene oxide (rGO) membrane with a 3D hierarchical structure was successfully synthesized by a general approach including vacuum filtration followed by thermal reduction. NiMoO4 nanorods with about 50–100 nm diameter were embedded homogenously into the 3D rGO sheets and assembled with rGO to form a membrane about 10 μm in thickness. The NiMoO4/rGO membrane could be directly evaluated as anode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) without using binder. The 3D layer stacked graphene hierarchical architecture can not only offers a continuous conducting framework for efficient diffusion and transport of ion/electron but also accommodates the large volume expansion of NiMoO4 nanorod changes during cycling. Moreover, our results show that the NiMoO4/rGO membrane exhibited excellent electrochemical performance with a high reversible capacity of 945 mAh g−1 at a current density of 0.25 A g−1 as anode materials in LIBs.
