• The LiFePO4/C is prepared by in-situ hydrothermal method and carbothermic reduction.
• The spherical LiFePO4/C composites insure the high tap density.
• The LiFePO4/C shows high reversibility, good discharge capacity and rate performance.
The LiFePO4 is recognized as the promising cathode material, due to its high specific capacity, excellent, structural stability and environmental benignity. However, it is blamed for the low tap density and poor rate performance when served as the cathode materials for a long time. Here, the microspheric LiFePO4/C composites are successfully synthesized through a one-step in-situ solvothermal method combined with carbothermic reduction. These LiFePO4/C microspheres are assembled by LiFePO4 nanoparticles (∼100 nm) and uniformly coated by the carbon, which show a narrow diameter distribution of 4 μm. As a cathode material for lithium ion batteries, the LiFePO4/C composites can deliver an initiate charge capacity of 155 mAh g−1 and retain 90% of initial capacity after 200 cycles at 0.1 C. When cycled at high current densities up to 20 C, it shows a discharge capacity of ∼60 mAh g−1, exhibiting superior rate performance. The significantly improved electrochemical performance of LiFePO4/C composites material can be attributed to its special micro-nano hierarchical structure. Microspheric LiFePO4/C composites exhibit a high tap density about 1.3 g cm−3. What's more, the well-coated carbon insures the high electrical conductivity and the nano-sized LiFePO4/C particles shorten lithium ion transport, thus exhibiting the high specific capacity, high cycling stability and good rate performance.
The LiFePO4/C with a special micro-nano hierarchical structure is prepared through the one-step in-situ solvothermal method combining carbothermic reduction, which exhibits a high discharge capacity, stable cycling reversibility and great rate performance.Figure optionsDownload as PowerPoint slide
