Abstract

Layered $LiMn_{1−x}M_xO_2$ (M = Zn or Fe) (0 \leq x \leq 0.3) samples are synthesized from the corresponding sodium analogues by an ion-exchange method using LiBr in n-hexanol at $160 ^oC$. The samples are subjected to physicochemical and electrochemical characterization. X-ray diffraction data indicate the formation of layered structures for the $LiMn_{1-x}M_xO_2$ samples up to x = 0.3 and for $LiMn_{1-x}M_xO_2$ samples up to x = 0.2. Among these, $LiMn_{0.95}Zn_{0.05}O_2$ and $LiMn_{0.95}Fe_{0.05}O_2$ provide the highest capacity values of 180 and $193 mAh g^{-1}$, respectively. Both Zn- and Fe-substituted samples display good capacity retention up to 30 charge–discharge cycles. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and galvanostatic intermittent titration data corroborate the results obtained from cyclic volatmmetry and charge–discharge cycling.
