Abstract  

A method to improve the cycling performance of LiCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3O2 in lithium-ion batteries by coating with TiO2 using an in-situ dipping and hydrolyzing method was presented in this work. The effect of the TiO2 coating on the structure and electrochemical properties of LiCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3O2 was investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), and galvanostatic charge/discharge testing. TiO2 forms a layer on the surface of LiCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3O2 without destroying the structure of the core material. The TiO2-coated LiCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3O2 possesses better rate capability and cyclability than the uncoated material. The capacity of the TiO2-coated material at 5.0C (1.0C=160 mA·g-1) reaches 66.0% of that achieved at 0.2C, while the capacity of the uncoated LiCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3O2 obtains a value of only 31.5%. The rate of capacity retention after 12 cycles at 2.0C for the coated sample is about 100%, which is much better than that of the uncoated material (94.4%). EIS shows that the reason for this improvement in the capacity of the coated material is the enhanced interface stability during cycling. XRD and ICP-OES tests taken after cycling indicate that the TiO2-coating can enhance the structural stability of LiCo1/3Ni1/3Mn1/3O2.
