Title: Review of the Stability/Capacity Trade-off in Silver Hollandite Lithium Battery Cathodes

Abstract

ABSTRACT Highly detailed structural characterization is required to understand the discharge mechanism in order to effectively investigate α-MnO 2structured lithium battery cathode materials. This paper discusses recent findings which elucidate the lithiation mechanism of silver-hollandite, Ag xMn 8O 16. For Ag 1.2Mn 8O 16, the structure is not significantly perturbed during the first 2 equivalents of lithiation and the electrochemistry is highly reversible. Upon 4 equivalents of lithiation, the structure becomes highly distorted, in correlation with capacity fade observed over 40 cycles. Notably, regarding capacity fade, modifications to Ag/Mn ratio are less impactful than modifications to the α-MnO 2crystallite size. This is shown in comparisons of two materials with the same stoichiometry (Ag 1.4Mn 8O 16) and differing crystallite size (10 and 15 nm).
