Title: Significantly Improved Cyclability of Conversion-Type Transition Metal Oxyfluoride Cathodes by Homologous Passivation Layer Reconstruction

Abstract

Electrode stabilization by surface passivation has been explored as the most crucial step to develop long-cycle lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In this work, functionally graded materials consisting of “conversion-type” iron-doped nickel oxyfluoride (NiFeOF) cathode covered with a homologous passivation layer (HPL) are rationally designed for long-cycle LIBs. The compact and fluorine-rich HPL plays dual roles in suppressing the volume change of NiFeOF porous cathode and minimizing the dissolution of transition metals during LIBs cycling by forming a structure/composition gradient. The structure and composition of HPL reconstructs during lithiation/delithiation, buffering the volume change and trapping the dissolved transition metals. As a result, a high capacity of 175 mAh g-1 (equal to an outstanding volumetric capacity of 936 Ah L-1) with a greatly reduced capacity decay rate of 0.012% per cycle for 1000 cycles is achieved, which is superior to the NiFeOF porous film without HPL and commercially available NiF2-FeF3 powders. Finally, the proposed chemical and structure reconstruction mechanism of HPL opens a new avenue for the novel materials development for long-cycle LIBs.
