Mechanism of oxygen release from Li-rich cathode material for lithium ion batteries

Conference Dates

March 10-14, 2019


For further wide spread of high energy density batteries, one of the most important technological challenges is preventing thermal runaway. For that, a key phenomenon is the oxygen release from cathode active materials, because released oxygen may react with the organic solvent and generate heat. Therefore, it is important to understand the mechanism of oxygen release to ensure safe battery operation. While the reaction of charged cathode material and organic solvent was investigated well [1], the mechanism of oxygen release from cathode material is not understood so far [2]. In this study, oxygen release behavior of Li-rich cathode material Li1.2Mn0.6Ni0.2O2-d was investigated, and the mechanism of oxygen release was discussed based on defect chemistry and thermodynamics.
