A new lithium-rich anti-spinel in Li–O–Br system

Author affiliations


In spinel-type materials currently known, the divalent anions are arranged in a closed-pack lattice and cations of various valences occupy some or all of the tetrahedral and octahedral sites. We report here the first discovery of an “electronically inverted” anti-spinel. The new material, crystallized in a defect spinel structure, was obtained from the dehydration of Li5Br(OH)4 under moderate pressure and temperature conditions.
