Abstract: LiNi0.8Co0.2-xMgxO2 (x=0.02, 0.03, 0.04) cathode materials were synthesized by co-precipitation method. The materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), thermogravimetry (TG), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The results showed that the spherical products, without impurities, had a typical α-NaFeO2 layered structure. In the range of 3.0-4.3 V, at 0.5 mA·cm-2 of the current density, the first specific capacity was 184.8 mAh·g-1. After 50 cycles, the capacity retention was 94.2%. The DSC result showed that after the doping with Mg2+, the phase transition of LiNi0.8Co0.2-xMgxO2 was inhibited without distinct capacity fall. At the same time, the stability and cycling character was improved obviously.
