A series of Al-doped Li1+xNi0.5AlxMn1.5-xO4 cathode materials for lithium ion batteries are successfully synthesized via a co-precipitation method. Raman spectroscopy studies reveal that the cation-disordered tends to increase with the content of Al. The data of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) depth profiles reveal that the inert Al3+ ions segregates preferentially to the surface during the synthesis process. The results of the electrochemical tests suggest that the substitution of a small amount of Al has the ability to improve the rate capability of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 spinel with conventional electrolytes. Especially, the Al-doped (x = 0.06) sample delivers a long cycle-life at high rate (20 C). The enhanced performance is attributed to the formation of Al-enriched surface, providing a more stable interface with the electrolyte at high voltage (∼4.7 V), along with the stabilization of the spinel structure with a disordering of the cations and improved Li-ion diffusion, based on results of the potentiostatic intermittent titration technique. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

The fluorine gradient-doped LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 spinels are synthesized by a facile one-step method and the effect of heat treatment on their structure, morphology, and electrochemical performance are investigated. The results show that introduction of fluorine leads to a larger lattice parameter and particle size, and the formation of F-enriched surface. Whereas at 400 °C, the fluorine gradient-doped LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 sample exhibits an improved long-term cycling stability and high rate performance, due to the suppression of the reaction between electrolyte and cathode, resulting in a decrease in the total resistance and the formation of a thin, uniform and smooth film on the surface. As a result of in situ XRD with charged pristine and the fluorine gradient-doped samples, the similar thermal-decomposition pathways from the charged spinel to the final NiMn2O4-type spinel structure with a small amount of NiMnO3 and α-Mn2O3 are observed. In addition, the disappearance temperature of the charged spinel structures is at about 280 °C for the fluorine gradient-doped sample, exhibiting an improved thermal stability of high voltage cathode material. These results show that fluorine gradient-doped LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 sample is a promising positive electrode material for high performance lithium ion batteries. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Battery degradation will happen in the process of storage, resulting in capacity diminishment and augmentation of inherent resistance. The understanding of the aging mechanism is crucial to predict the state-of-health of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In this paper, a pseudo-OCV model of a LIBs is developed to investigate the evolution of internal parameters, and a degradation model which can be used for predicting the calendar life of the battery is developed. The good agreement between the calculated and experimental results is the evidence that the models are able to accurately capture the degradation process of the battery. In addition, we use both incremental capacity and differential voltage analysis to research the aging mechanism of a lithium ion battery. Our results revealed that the capacity fading during the aging process is predominantly caused by the loss of Li-ions and self-discharge. © 2017 The Electrochemical Society. All rights reserved.

The stability of current collector in high voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 batteries and the rate performance and cyclic stability of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 electrodes using three current collectors were investigated, including an Al foil, an etched Al foil (E-Al), and a carbon-coated Al foil (C-Al). The oxidation stability of current collector at high voltage is significantly improved by carbon coating on the Al foil, which can make a good contact between the current collector and active layer. The surface structure and composition of the current collectors strongly affect the rate capability and cyclic performance of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 electrodes. Interestedly, using the C-Al current collector not only remarkably increases the rate capability with the capacity of 78 mAh g−1 and the average discharge voltage of 4.1 V at 40 C-rate, but also greatly enhances its cyclic stability at 55◦C. Furthermore, the formation of a thin and uniform surface film is observed on the cycled LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 electrode using the C-Al current collector, which can be attributed to reducing the electrode polarization and suppressing the electrolyte decomposition, leading to good capacity retention. In brief, the carbon-coated Al foil can be applicable to the high voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 material of Li-ion battery. © 2017 The Electrochemical Society.

Li/CFx primary possesses the highest energy density of 2180 W h kg-1 among all primary lithium batteries. However, a key limitation for the utility of this type of battery is in its poor rate capability because the cathode material, CFx, is an intrinsically poor electronic conductor. Here, we report on our development of a controlled process of surface de-fluorination under mild hydrothermal conditions to modify the highly fluorinated CFx. The modified CFx, consisting of an in situ generated shell component of F-graphene layers, possesses good electronic conductivity and removes the transporting barrier for lithium ions, yielding a high-capacity performance and an excellent rate-capability. Indeed, a capacity of 500 mA h g-1 and a maximum power density of 44 800 W kg-1 can be realized at the ultrafast rate of 30 C (24 A g-1), which is over one order of magnitude higher than that of the state-of-the-art primary lithium-ion batteries. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2014.

A new electrolyte based on fluorinated 3-(1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethoxy)-1,1,2,2-tetrafluoropropane (F-EPE) solvent is studied in LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4/Li cells. The electrochemical stability of the electrolyte with 10% F-EPE is carried out by linear sweep voltammetry and electrochemical floating test. These results indicate that the electrolyte with F-EPE has an oxidation potential of more than 5.2 V vs. Li+/Li, which is higher than that without F-EPE and enlarges the oxidative window of electrolyte. A thin and uniform SEI layer is formed on the surface of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 cathode by using electrolyte with F-EPE, leads to an improvement in the electrochemical performance, validated by charge-discharge tests, EIS, SEM, TEM, and XPS analysis. © 2016 Published by Elsevier B.V.


With rapidly growing application of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles and renewable energy storage, there is an increasing demand on high performance batteries in terms of energy density and power density. For anode materials, the traditional graphitized carbon materials cannot meet these requirements, novel high-capacity anode materials are being widely investigated, including Si-based materials. Among them, SiOx is considered to be a promising anode material for the practical use because it can deliver a high capacity and at thesame time produce relatively lower volume change upon cycling compared to pure silicon. This paper summarizes the published works on SiOx-based anode materials. The basic electrochemical performance, structure model, electrochemical reaction mechanism and synthesis methods of SiOx powders are systematically reviewed. Methods used to improve electrochemical performance are classified and introduced, emphasized on those of SiO and amorphous SiO2. These works suggested that the oxygen content, disproportionation level and surface state of SiOx have significant influence on the electrochemical performance of SiOx. The interface clusters mixture (ICM) structural model can be used to better understand the nature of the electrochemical reaction processes of SiOx. Introduction of second phase (carbon, metals, metal oxides, etc.), preparation of porous structure, surface modification and optimization of binder and electrolyte are proved to be effective methods to improve the coulombic efficiency and cycling performance of SiOx electrode. Batteries with optimized SiOx-based material showed good cycling stability with 90% capacity retention after 600 cycles. SiOx-based composite is one of the best promising anode materials for lithium-ion batteries with high energy density. ©, 2015, Chinese Academy of Sciences. All right reserved.

We report the application of free-standing, lightweight, and flexible graphene/Au composite paper (GACP), as a current collector for CFx cathode. At a high discharge current density of 4000 mA g-1 (5C), the capacity of the CF1.0 loaded on GACP current collector is 653 mAh g-1, while CF1.0 loaded on Al foil failed at 800 mA g -1 (1C). Using GACP, both excellent rate capability and specific capacity can be achieved simultaneously, owing to its undulant surface structure and flexible contact with the CFx composite active layer. Our results provide a new strategy to design both high power and energy densities CFx cathode. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Self-binding noble metal (Pt, Au, and Ag)/graphene composite papers as large as 13 cm in diameter were fabricated using a flow-directed method where in situ reduced graphene served as a "binder". The papers were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. This approach yielded well dispersed metals with various nanostructures both on and between the graphene layers to form papers with good conductivity and flexiblility. The 300 °C-annealed Ag/graphene papers were evaluated as binder-free anodes for lithium ion batteries, delivering a reversible charge capacity of 689 mAh/g at a current density of 20 mA/g. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
