Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Here we demonstrate a general low-temperature (260°C) molten salt electrodeposition approach to directly electroplate lithium transition metal oxides (LTMOs) e.g. LiCoO2 and LiMn2O4. The electrochemical properties of the electroplated LTMOs are comparable to powders obtained via classical routes at much higher temperatures (700 ~ 1000°C). This new synthesis method provides a new platform to design and optimize battery electrodes, potentially enabling simultaneous high energy and high power.
