Nanomaterial for lithium batteries can decrease mechanical strain upon lithium intercalation/ deintercalation from lattice, and lead to high rate capability. The currently available microwave technology permits the development and implantation of a temperature-controlled microwave-assisted hydrothermal synthesis (TCMH) of nano-sized cathode material for lithium batteries. Unlike in previous reported traditional hydrothermal synthesis of cathode material LiFePO4, the pure phase of LiFePO4 can be… CONTINUE READING
