Abstract

Co-doped Li2MoO3 was successfully synthesized via a solid phase method. The impacts of Co-doping on Li2MoO3 have been analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) measurements. The results show that an appropriate amount of Co ions can be introduced into the Li2MoO3 lattices, and they can reduce the particle sizes of the cathode materials. Electrochemical tests reveal that Co-doping can significantly improve the electrochemical performances of the Li2MoO3 materials. Li2Mo0.90Co0.10O3 presents a first-discharge capacity of 220 mAh·g−1, with a capacity retention of 63.6% after 50 cycles at 5 mA·g−1, which is much better than the pristine samples (181 mAh·g−1, 47.5%). The enhanced electrochemical performances could be due to the enhancement of the structural stability, and the reduction in impedance, due to the Co-doping. View Full-Text
