Title: Stabilization of a High-Capacity and High-Power Nickel-Based Cathode for Li-Ion Batteries

Abstract

High-capacity and high-power nickel-based cathode materials have become the principal candidates for a lithium-ion energy storage system powering electrified transportation units. With high nickel content, the cathodes are of great interest for delivering the desired specific energy and energy density. However, the cells still suffer from fast capacity decay and low thermal-abuse tolerance to high voltage. At the highly delithiated state, the damage in the cell is mainly from severe parasitic reactions, including the oxygen evolution reaction in the cathode and oxidization of the organic electrolyte. These side reactions rapidly weaken the system's rate capacity and cyclability. Solutions are being sought to provide safe operation and practical application. Three strategies have proven to be encouraging choices: surface coating, a core-shell structure, and a concentration gradient structure. For each strategy, the material architecture, fabrication procedure, operation principle, advances, and challenges are discussed in this review. Furthermore, the prospects for further developments are also summarized.
