State-of-the-art cathode materials for Lithium-ion batteries

State-of-the-art cathode materials for Lithium-ion batteries i) 1st generation cathode: LCO The first cathode material developed for Li-ion batteries is LiCoO2 (abbreviated as LCO). It has a layered (hexagonal) structure with space group R-3M. The structure consisting of Li-O-Co-O-Li layers along the c axis is shown in Figure 1. Both Co and Li occupy alternating octahedral […]
