Title: A β-VOPO4/ε-VOPO4 composite Li-ion battery cathode

Abstract

VOPO 4 is an example of a Li-ion battery cathode that can achieve over 300 Ah/kg when two Li-ions are intercalated. A two phase β-VOPO 4/ε-VOPO 4 composite was found to improve the cycling capacity of ε-VOPO 4 from tetragonal H 2VOPO 4, particularly as the rate is increased. In the potential range of 2.0–4.5 V, this composite showed an initial electrochemical capacity of 208 mAh/g at 0.08 mA/cm 2, 190 mAh/g at 0.16 mA/cm 2, and 160 mAh/g at 0.41 mA/cm 2.
