Transition metal oxides are promising electrocatalysts for both water oxidations and metal-air batteries. Here, we report the virus-mediated synthesis of cobalt manganese oxide nanowires (NWs) to fabricate high capacity Li-O2 battery electrodes. Furthermore, we hybridized Ni nanoparticles (NPs) on bio Co3O4 NWs to improve the round trip efficiency as well as the cycle life of Li-O2 batteries. This biomolecular directed synthesis method is expected to provide a selection platform for future energy storage electrocatalysts.
