Determination of optimal carbon content on a particle size of LiFePO4/C cathode active nano-material for lithium-ion batteries

Ahmet Ornek, Emrah Bulut, Mahmut Ozacar


In order to optimize carbon content on LiFePO4/C particle size, three samples were synthesized by sol-gel method. The samples of LiFePO4/C were synthesized with the addition of 10, 30 and 50 % wt. of tartaric acid as a carbon precursor. All samples were characterized by XRD and SEM.
