Abstract

Low levels of trivalent cations were utilized to stabilize LiMn2O4 spinel cathode materials against capacity decline during electrochemical cycling. Of the several single-phase products obtained, only those with Cr3+ and Ga3+ prevented capacity fade, and only LiCr0.02Mn1.98O4 exhibited acceptable initial reversible capacity. The external particle morphology was unchanged by the preparation or the admetal, and the internal structures were all converted to cong tou (onion) configurations during product synthesis. Grain size played a surprising role in cathode performance:
