Electrochemical properties of lithium–titanium oxide, modified with Ag–Cu particles, as a negative electrode for lithium-ion batteries

Composites of Li4Ti5O12 with Ag–Cu particles were successfully synthesized by solid-state reaction followed by thermal decomposition of the metal substrates. The presence of metallic particles was confirmed by X-ray diffraction, scanning transmission electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Galvanostatic charge–discharge tests showed improved specific capacity and capacity retention of Li4Ti5O12/Ag–Cu composites at a 10C current rate, while cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy revealed changes in Li⁺ ion chemical diffusion coefficient values and charge-transfer resistance with increasing amount of Ag–Cu in prepared powders. The synthesis and structural, morphological and electrochemical evaluation of Li4Ti5O12/Ag–Cu powders, carried out in this work, were also presented here for the first time.

Thank you, your study will help me to understand the nano materials.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
