Synthesis, microstructure, and electrochemical performance of Li-rich layered oxide cathode materials for Li-ion batteries
- 6 Downloads
Li-rich layered oxides Li1.2Mn0.54Ni0.13Co0.13O2 were synthesized by modified Pechini method using various compositions of the reaction mixture. Difference in the electrochemical performance of cathodes on their basis is explained by different morphology and microstructure of the materials. The porous hierarchical structure favors a better electrochemical performance. The presence of defects, including crystal twins, in the samples is considered to be a major reason that leads to their poor cyclability and rate capability.
