Title: Insights into the Improved High-Voltage Performance of Li-Incorporated Layered Oxide Cathodes for Sodium-Ion Batteries

Abstract

By virtue of their prominent advantages in terms of capacity/voltage output and cost, O3-type layered transition-metal oxides are considered promising cathode materials for sodium-ion batteries. However, their unstable electrochemistry at high voltages due to complex multiphase evolution in the bulk structure and a continuous degradation of electrolyte|cathode interphase hampers their practical viability. In this work, we are able to reveal a dual-stabilization effect of the cation dopants on the evolution of bulk structure and electrode|electrolyte interphase of a Li-substituted O3-type cathode upon Na (de)intercalation. The incorporation of Li into the transition-metal layer could mitigate the Jahn-Teller distortion of Ni3+ ion and prevent the loss of active transition-metal ions, so that it supresses the unfavorable high-voltage phase transition and the degradation of electrolyte|cathode interphase. As an effect, the Li-incorporated cathode material displays a high reversible capacity with good high-voltage durability to facilitate its service in high-energy-density sodium-ion batteries.
