Dimensionally modulated, single-crystalline LiMPO4 (M= Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni) with nano-thumblike shapes for high-power energy storage.


We demonstrate an efficient and rapid microwave irradiated solvothermal method to prepare nanostructured lithium metal phosphates LiMPO(4) (M = Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni) within a short reaction time (5-15 min) at temperatures as low as 300 degrees C without requiring any post annealing at elevated temperatures. The highly viscous, high-boiling tetraethyleneglycol… (More)
