Combustion-Free Synthesis of Lithium Manganese Oxide Composites with CNTs/GNPs by Chemical Coprecipitation for Energy Storage Devices
MetadataShow full item record
Nano Spinel Lithium Manganese Oxide (LiMn2O4) was distributed properly on carbon nanotubes ( CNTs) and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) using chemical coprecipitation method. The original particle size was less than 40 nm, and the average size of the crystallite was 20 nm without the application of any capping agents. Characteristic spectra of spinel structure and a peak of CNTs & GNPs obtained using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD). CNTs and GNPs in energy storage systems improve the rate capabilities and cyclic efficiency of cathode materials. The suggested technique, chemical coprecipitation, provides new avenues for the production of nano-sized lithium transition metal oxide composites with CNTs and GNPs in an inexpensive and simple way. Higher density energy storage systems raise significant safety issues, and for safety, they are restricted to 30 percent to 50 percent of their ability. The proposed composite would enable the energy storage systems to be used even at high temperatures and higher discharge rates above 60 percent of their ability. Besides, the parasitic reaction between the electrode surface and the electrolyte will decrease, which will increase the battery's projected life span. As an all-solid-state device, the new composite batteries would make the system non-flammable, immune from side reactions, and resistant to capacity erosion.
