Iron nanoparticles that are useful for constructing electrodes for lithium ion batteries and a method of making said particles is disclosed herein. The nanoparticles may include magnetite. The electrode may be constructed by centrifuging the nanoparticles to a current collector, such as a disc of copper, without the use of an extrinsic binder. The solvothermal method of making nanoparticles decreases the time of the procedure from about 24 hours to about 75 minutes. The method of making electrode decreases the complexity and number of steps compared to the conventional procedure to prepare an electrode, and eliminates the use of additives (binder and current enhancer) and toxic NMP solvents in the electrode preparation process.
