The $Li_4Ti_5O_{12}$/AC composite was prepared by sol-gel process with ultrasonication. The prepared composite was characterized by SEM, XRD and TG analysis, and their electrochemical behaviors were investigated by cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and charge-discharge test in 1M $LiBF_4$/PC electrolyte. From the results, the $Li_4Ti_5O_{12}$ particles coated on AC surface had an average particle size of 100 nm and showed spinel-framework structure. When the potential range of the $Li_4Ti_5O_{12}$/AC composite was extended from 0.1 to 2.5 V, redox peaks and electric double layer property were revealed. The initial discharge capacity of $Li_4Ti_5O_{12}$/AC composite was 218 mAh $g^{-1}$ at 1 C. The enhancement of discharge capacity was attributed to electric double layer of added activated carbon.
Keywords: $Li_4Ti_5O_{12}$, activated carbon, electric double layer, electrochemical capacitor
