Title: An alternative lithium cathode material: Synthesis, characterization, and electrochemical analysis of Li{sub 8}(Ni{sub 5}Co{sub 2}Mn)O{sub 16}

Abstract

The authors have previously reported a nonaqueous solution route to LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4} and LiCoO{sub 2} materials that have demonstrated acceptable characteristics for use as lithium battery cathode materials. Due to the flexibility of processes, complex formulations of cathode materials can be easily generated and studied. Utilizing this flexibility, the authors have investigated a complex lithium transition metal oxide material, Li{sub 8}(Ni{sub 5}Co{sub 2}Mn)O{sub 16}, for use as an alternative cathode material. This material was analyzed by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques which indicated it was phase pure. Electrochemical investigations revealed a high capacity ({approximately}150 mAh/g) with a fade rate of {approximately}0.41 mAh/g/cycle (0.27%/cycle).
