Abstract

Submicron-sized Li(Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3) O2 particles were prepared by spray pyrolysis. A polymeric precursor solution containing citric acid and ethylene glycol enabled the formation of submicron-sized Li(Ni1/3Co1/3 Mn1/3)O2 spherical particles with narrow-sized distribution and non-aggregation characteristics in the spray pyrolysis. The mean sizes of the particles post-treated at temperatures of 800 and 900°C were 380 and 770 nm. On the other hand, the Li(Ni1/3 Co1/3Mn1/3)O2 particles obtained from the aqueous solution had irregular morphology and broad-sized distribution. The discharge capacity of the particles prepared from polymeric precursor solution decreased from 88 mAh/g to 135 mAh/g after 50 cycles. The particles prepared from polymeric precursor solution had high discharge capacity and good cyclic properties than those of the particles prepared from the aqueous solution.
