Abstract

To improve the kinetic performance of LiMn0.8Fe0.2PO4, a facile and controllable non-stoichiometric one-pot stepwise feeding solvothermal approach is successfully developed for preparing nickel-doped LiMn0.8Fe0.2PO4 nanosheets. LiMn0.8Fe0.19Ni0.01PO4 nanosheets, with an appropriate particle size, ideal lattice volume, smooth surface morphology and high phase purity, could be fabricated through trace amount of nickel doping, modest lithium hydroxide deficiency and stepwise feeding mode, and exhibit the optimal cycling performance and rate capability after carbon coating. After 200 charge/discharge cycles at 0.5C, the LiMn0.8Fe0.19Ni0.01PO4 cathode only slightly decreases to 148 mA h gāˆ’1, corresponding to the capacity retention of 94.1%. Even if increased to 10C and 20C, 75.7% and 65.2%, respectively, initial capacities at 0.1C can still be maintained. These results demonstrate that a suitable Ni2+ content and a rational synthesized route are helpful to improve electronic conductivity and Li-ion mobility.
