Abstract: The spinel LiMn2O4 was synthesized by high temperature solid-state reaction and its structure and morphology were analyzed by XRD and SEM. A 2.5 Ah cylindrical lithium-ion battery was developed using electrodes made with water-soluble polymer binder, and its electrochemical performance was tested as well. The results showed that the synthesized LiMn2O4 material has simple spinel phase. The cell with water-binder LiMn2O4 electrode showed excellent electrochemical performance. The cathode’s specific capacity reached 95.8 mAh·g-1 at 0.5C (1C=2.5A) rate and the average discharge voltage of the cell was 3.85 V at 1C rate. The cells also have good safety performances during overcharging.

Key words: Cathode with water-binder, LiMn2O4, Li-ion battery
