Abstract  Ti-doped LiFe0.6Mn0.4PO4/C materials were synthesized by a solid-state method. The structures, morphologies, and electrochemical performance of the materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and galvanostatic charge-discharge experiments. The results indicate that Ti4+ doping does not change the structure of the materials, but remarkably improves their electrochemical performance. Li(Fe0.6Mn0.4)0.96Ti0.02PO4/C shows excellent rate performance, with initial specific discharge capacities of 160.3 and 134.7 mAh·g-1 at 0.1C and 10C rates. Even at the higher rate of 20C, it shows a discharge capacity of 124.4 mAh·g-1. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and cyclic voltammetry (CV) analyses show that the resistance and the polarization of the LiFe0.6Mn0.4PO4/C composite electrode could be effectively decreased by Ti4+ doping, which would account for the improved electrode performance.
