Lithium Battery Properties of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 Powders Synthesized by Internal Combustion Type Spray Pyrolysis Apparatus Using Gas Burner
Spherical LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 powders were prepared by internal combustion type spray pyrolysis apparatus using gas burner. The powder production capacity was 1 kg/h by this equipment. After calcinations of as-prepared powders contained Ni at different temperatures from 800 to 1200 °C in air for 10h, LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 powders were obtained. As-prepared particles have a porous microstructure with an average diameter of about 5 μm with narrow size distribution. XRD showed that LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 powders were well crystallized to a spinel structure with Fd3m space group. LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 powders calcined at 1000°C show good cycle performance with after 30 cycles discharge capacity of 112mAh/g and 95% retention after 400 cycles between 3.5 V and 5 V.
