Abstract

Physiochemical and electrochemical means were used to characterize the failure mechanisms of the lithium manganese oxide based solid solutions utilized as positive electrodes for Li batteries, Resultant data supports a theory in which the 22 and 55°C failure mechanisms are one in the same, The poor performance is exacerbated during cycling due to a mechanism linked to the symbiotic relationship between physical destruction induced by a surface Jahn-Teller distortion and the classic failure mechanisms presented for the chemical failure of the spinel at elevated temperature storage. Based on these findings, a spinel, LiAlaMn2-x O4-zFz, was fabricated which exhibits enhanced stability at elevated temperature.
