Synthesis and Electrochemical Properties of a LiNi0.7Co0.3O1.9Cl0.1 Cathode Material for Lithium-Ion Battery
Partial oxygen in LiNi0.7Co0.3O2 was replaced by chlorine to form LiNi0.7Co0.3O1.9Cl0.1. Phase structure of LiNi0.7Co0.3O1.9Cl0.1 was identified as a pure hexagonal lattice of α-NaFeO2 type by X-ray diffraction. Discharge capacity of LiNi0.7Co0.3O1.9Cl0.1 was 202 mAh/g in initial cycle at 15 mA/g current density in 2.5- 4.3 V potential window. The constant current charge/discharge experiments and cyclic voltammograms showed that chlorine addition was effective to improve reversible capacity and cycle stability of LiNi0.7Co0.3O2.
