Amorphization and recrystallization study of lithium insertion into manganese dioxide.


Various polymorphs of MnO(2) are widely used as electrode materials in Li/MnO(2) batteries. Electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) is the most electrochemically active form of MnO(2) and is very difficult to characterize. Their structural details are still largely unknown owing to the poor quality of X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns obtained from most MnO(2… (More)
