    Co3O4peration. Porous and polycrystalline Co3O4 nanotubes have been derived from Co4(CO)12 clusters on carbon nanotube templates. The prepared porous Co3O4 nanotubes exhibit superior Li-battery performance with good cycle life and high capacity (1200 mAh g–1) owing to their hollow structure and small size. Moreover, this approach can be extended to synthesize other porous metal oxide.
