Electrochemical Properties of Porous LiAlXMn2-XO4 Powders Prepared by Immersion of Li and Al Nitrate Solution to Spherical Mn2O3 Powders
Spherical porous Mn2O3 powders were prepared by spray pyrolysis. Li and Al nitrate solution were immersed to porous Mn2O3 powders to obtain LiAlXMn2-XO4. Homogeneous LiAlXMn2-XO4 powders were formed by the calcination at 800°C. SEM observation showed that they had spherical morphology with particle size of about 1m. XRD revealed that the spinel phase was obtained by heating at 800°C. LiAlXMn2-XO4 cathode obtained by this method exhibited higher rechargeable capacity and cycle stability than that obtained by spray pyrolysis. The doping of Al ion was effective for the cycle stability at elevated temperature.
