Title: One-step hydrothermal synthesis and electrochemical performance of sodium-manganese-iron phosphate as cathode material for Li-ion batteries

Abstract

The sodium-manganese-iron phosphate Na 2Mn 1.5Fe 1.5(PO 4) 3 (NMFP) with alluaudite structure was obtained by a one-step hydrothermal synthesis route. The physical properties and structure of this material were obtained through XRD and Mössbauer analyses. X-ray diffraction Rietveld refinements confirm a cationic distribution of Na + and presence of vacancies in A(2)’, Na + and small amounts of Mn 2+ in A(1), Mn 2+ in M(1) , 0.5 Mn 2+ and Fe cations (Mn 2+,Fe 2+ and Fe 3+) in M(2), leading to the structural formula Na 2Mn(Mn 0.5Fe 1.5)(PO 4) 3. The particles morphology was investigated by SEM. Several reactions with different hydrothermal reaction times were attempted to design a suitable synthesis protocol of NMFP compound. The time of reaction was varied from 6 to 48 hours at 220°C. The pure phase of NMFP particles was firstly obtained when the hydrothermal reaction of NMFP precursors mixture was maintained at 220°C for 6 hours. When the reaction time was increased from 6 to 12, 24 and 48 hours, the dandelion structure was destroyed in favor of NMFP micro-rods. The combination of NMFP (NMFP-6H, NMFP-12H, NMFP-24H and NMFP-48H) structure refinement and Mössbauer characterizations shows that the increase of the reactionmore » time leads to the progressive increment of Fe(III) and the decrease of the crystal size. The electrochemical tests indicated that NMFP is a 3 V sodium intercalating cathode. The comparison of the discharge capacity evolution of studied NMFP electrode materials at C/5 current density shows different capacities of 48, 40, 34 and 34 mAhg-1 for NMFP-6H, NMFP-12H, NMFP-24H and NMFP-48H respectively. Interestingly, all samples show excellent capacity retention of about 99 % during 50 cycles.« less

Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Li{sub 1.10}Ni{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 0.3}Co{sub 0.2}O{sub 2+{delta}} had the lowest charge transfer resistance. -- Abstract: In this work, layered lithium-excess materials Li{sub 1+x}Ni{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 0.3}Co{sub 0.2}O{sub 2+{delta}} (x = 0, 0.05, 0.10 and 0.15), of spherical morphology withmore » primary nanoparticles assembled in secondary microspheres, were synthesized by a coprecipitation method. The effects of lithium content on the structure and electrochemical performance of these materials were evaluated by employing X-ray diffraction (XRD), inductive coupled plasma (ICP), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and galvanostatic charge/discharge tests. It is found that Li{sub 1.10}Ni{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 0.3}Co{sub 0.2}O{sub 2+{delta}}, i.e., Li[(Ni{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 0.3}Co{sub 0.2}){sub 0.95}Li{sub 0.05}]O{sub 2} showed the best electrochemical performance due to the highly ordered layered structure, reduced cation mixing and the lowest charge transfer resistance. Li{sub 1.10}Ni{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 0.3}Co{sub 0.2}O{sub 2+{delta}} delivered a discharge capacity of 145 mA h g{sup -1} at 125 mA g{sup -1} in the cut-off voltage of 2.5-4.3 V, and had a capacity retention of 100% after 50 cycles at room temperature.« less

The V{sub 2}O{sub 5} prepared at 500 °Cmore » is dense and spherical nanostructured particles, which consist of primary particles with a size of approximately 100 nm. The morphology change remarkably progresses with increasing synthesis temperatures from 500 to 700 °C. The electrochemical performance of a cathode comprising dense and spherical nanostructured V{sub 2}O{sub 5} particles prepared at 500 °C was investigated by galvanostatic discharge–charge cycling and cyclic voltammetry. From the discharge–charge cycling, the initial discharge capacity of the cathode was found to be about 403 mAh g{sup −1} in the potential range of 1.5–4.0 V, but it decreased owing to inherent phase changes with repeated cycling. The potential range significantly affects the cycle performance, and the V{sub 2}O{sub 5} cathode showed good cycle performance in the potential range of 2.5–4.0 V.« less
