Synthesis and Electrochemical Properties of Porous LiAl0.05Mn1.95O4 for High Power LIB by Spray Pyrolysis
Spherical LiAl0.05Mn1.95O4 precursor powders were successfully prepared by spray pyrolysis. LiAl0.05Mn1.95O4 precursor powders were calcined by 800°C for 10hrs. The particles size, morphology, microstructure, crystal phases of the calcined powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The XRD patterns showed that the crystal phases of the calcined powders were the same as spinel phase (space group: Fd3m). The particles exhibited a spherical morphology with a porous microstructure. The particle size of the primary particles was approximately 200nm. LiAl0.05Mn1.95O4 cathodes exhibited higher rechargeable capacity and cycle stability at high rates. The particle microstructure of LiAl0.05Mn1.95O4 powders was effective for the rechargeable capacity at high rates.
