Title: LiCoPO4 cathode from a CoHPO4·xH2O nanoplate precursor for high voltage Li-ion batteries

Highly crystalline LiCoPO4/C cathode has been synthesized without any impurities via single step solid-state reaction using CoHPO4xH2O nanoplates as a precursor obtained by simple precipitation route. The electrochemical test shows specific capacity as high as 125mAh/g at charge/discharge rate of C/10. Synthesis approach for obtaining CoHPO4xH2O nanoplate precursor and final LiCoPO4/C cathode using single step solid-state reaction have been characterized using X-ray diffraction, thermos gravimetric analyses (TGA) – differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The electrochemical test and cycling stability using different electrolytes, additive and separator have been investigated.
