High voltage spinel LiNi(0.5)Mn(1.5)O(4) is a very promising cathode material for lithium ion batteries that can be used to power hybrid electrical vehicles (HEVs). Through careful control of the cooling rate after high temperature calcination, LiNi(0.5)Mn(1.5)O(4) spinels with different disordered phase and/or Mn(3+) contents have been synthesized. It is(More)
Carbon-based anodes are the key limiting factor in increasing the volumetric capacity of lithium-ion batteries. Tin-based composites are one alternative approach. Nanosized Sn-Fe-C anode materials are mechanochemically synthesized by reducing SnO with Ti in the presence of carbon. The optimum synthesis conditions are found to be 1:0.25:10 for initial ratio(More)
Gray-green single crystals were obtained under high-pressure, high-temperature hydro-thermal conditions. A refinement of atom occupancies gave the composition Li(3.68)Cu(2+)Fe(3+)(Cu(0.55)Li(0.45))(2)Fe(2+) (0.15)(PO(4))(4). The structure is built from triplets of edge-sharing (Cu,Li)O(5)-FeO(6)-(Cu,Li)O(5) polyhedra, CuO(4) quadrilaterals and PO(4)(More)
Structure refinement of high-resolution X-ray powder diffraction data of the title compound gave the composition Li(1.865)CoP(2)O(7), which is also verified by the ICP measurement. Two Co sites exist in the structure: one is a CoO(5) square pyramid and the other is a CoO(6) octa-hedron. They share edges and are further inter-connected through P(2)O(7)(More)
