Composite cathode material xLiFePO4·yLi3V2(PO4)3 was obtained from wet chemical reduction and lithiation method by using FePO4·xH2O, V2O5, NH4H2PO4, Li2CO3 as raw materials and oxalic acid as reductant. X-ray diffraction (XRD) results showed that the composite material contained olivine LiFePO4 and monoclinic Li3V2(PO4)3 phases. High resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDAX) results indicated that some LiFePO4 and Li3V2(PO4)3 in the composite material were doped by V and Fe, respectively, and formed a solid solution. The valences of Fe and V doping in Li3V2(PO4)3 and LiFePO4 are +2 and +3, respectively. Charge and discharge tests showed that the synthesized composite material exhibited better electrochemical performance than individual LiFePO4 and Li3V2(PO4)3. Cyclic voltammetry indicated the composite material showing good lithium ions extraction/insertion property.
