General description

Lithium cobalt(III) oxide is a class of electrode material that can be used in the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries consist of anode, cathode, and electrolyte with a charge-discharge cycle. These materials enable the formation of greener and sustainable batteries for electrical energy storage.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

Application

Critical substance in the quest for high performance, advanced batteries.
Lithium cobalt(III) oxide (LiCoO2) can be used as a cathode material with a specific capacity of ~274 mAhg−1 for the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Commercially, these LiCoO2 fabricated Li-ion batteries can be used in a majority of smartphones. LiCoO2 can also be used in the formation of fuel cells.

Nanomaterials for Energy Storage in Lithium-ion Battery Applications

Increasing fuel costs and concerns about greenhouse gas emissions have spurred the growth in sales of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) that carry a battery pack to supplement the performance of the internal combustion engine (ICE).

Professor Qiao’s laboratory lays out recent advances in conversion type lithium metal fluoride batteries. This review explores key concepts in developing electrochemically stable microstructures for wide Li-ion insertion channels.

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and solid oxide electrolyzers (SOE) are in the early stages of development; however, the performance that has been achieved shows promise for conversion between chemical and electrical energy.
