The superstructured $Li_{4/3}Ti_{5/3}O_4$ was prepared by sol-gel process using a mixed solution of lithium acetate (LA) and titanium n-butoxide (TNB). The gel phase was obtained by adding ammonia water ($NH_4OH/TNB$ mole ratio of 0.35) and water ($H_2O/TNH$ mole ratio of 3.5) into the clear sol that was prepared after mixing TNB/LA mole ratio of 5/4 with AA/TNB mole raio of 0.125. It was found that the most suitable $Li_{4/3}Ti_{5/3}O_4$ was obtained by heat treatment of xerogel at $600^{\circ}C$ for 30 hrs. The synthesized $Li_{4/3}Ti_{5/3}O_4$ showed an initial discharge capacity of 174 mAh/g and the capacity loss of about 27.3% during 25 cycles in Li/1M $LiClO_4(in\;PC)/Li_{4/3}Ti_{5/3}O_4$ at current density of $0.15mA/cm^2$ and the voltage range of 0.5~3.0 V.
