Robust LiTi2(PO4)3 microflowers as high-rate and long-life cathodes for Mg-based hybrid-ion batteries

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel NASICON-type carbon-coated LiTi2(PO4)3 microflowers (LTP-F/C) as a hybrid magnesium–lithium-ion battery (MLIB) cathode is presented for the first time. Benefiting from the synergistic effect of the NASICON structure, nanosheet-constructed hierarchical architecture, and uniform carbon coating of LTP-F/C, this hybrid MLIB exhibits extraordinary electrochemical performance: ultra-high cycling stability (capacity retention of 80% after 3000 cycles at 10 C) and outstanding rate capability (94 mA h g−1 at 20 C) under a high discharge voltage plateau of ∼1.71 V (vs. Mg/Mg2+). This hybrid battery system design is highly promising for large-scale energy storage applications.
