Fe3O4 films were prepared by electrodeposition under varying preparation conditions (current density, temperature, and time). The electrodeposited Fe3O4 were characterized in terms of morphology and composition using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The electrodeposited films were also tested as anode in coin cell systems. Fluoroethylene carbonate (FEC) electrolyte was found to improve the battery performance due to formation of a better solid electrolyte interface (SEI). Conducting polymer of polypyrrole (PPY) was coated on the surface of Fe3O4 films for the first time with the aim to improve the electric conductivity and to buffer volume expansion of Fe3O4 films.
