## Abstract

$Li_{0.9}Mn_{0.9}Ni_{0.1}O_2$ has been prepared by an ion-exchange process and evaluated as cathode material for Lithium-ion batteries. The oxide particles were subjected to surface modification by coating with a thin layer of ZnO. The ZnO-coated and uncoated material were characterized by chem. anal., powder XRD, SEM, EDAX, EDS-dot mapping, cyclic voltammetry, charge-discharge cycling and AC impedance spectroscopy. The physicochem. studies suggest the formation of a layered structure in the oxide with a uniformly dispersed ZnO coating on the fine particles. The electrochem. studies suggest a stable discharge capacity of $210 mA \hspace {3mm}h \hspace {3mm} g^{-1}$ for ZnO-coated oxide over about 50 cycles. By contrast, the capacity of the uncoated oxide decreases rapidly on cycling. The enhanced performance of these electrodes was confirmed by AC impedance studies.
