Fe2O3@C material was prepared by one-step hydrothermal method for use as a negative electrode in an iron-air battery. The structure of Fe2O3@C was determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurement while their morphology was observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The electrochemical properties of the Fe2O3@C electrode in alkaline solution were investigated using cyclic voltammetry (CV) measurement. The results showed that Fe2O3@C material with α-Fe2O3 structure and amorphous carbon were successfully synthesized by one-step hydrothermal method. CV measurements indicate that the redox reaction rate of the Fe2O3@C electrode is higher than that of the Fe2O3@AB electrode using commercial Fe2O3 and AB (Acetylene Black Carbon).
