Optimizing the carbon coating on LiFePO4 for improved battery performance

Author affiliations

Abstract

Core–shell structures as LiFePO4@carbon with a continuous and uniform carbon coating were achieved by means of the in situ polymerization of dopamine. Systematic control of the coating layer identified that a 5 nm carbon coating produces the best battery performance. Our results provide conclusive evidence for an optimal carbon coating for polyanion-type cathode materials.
