Alternative to cobalt-based cathodes in li-ion batteries

This post was originally published on this site

Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers have developed a potential replacement for cobalt-based cathodes in li-ion batteries called NFA (nickel-, iron- and aluminium) – a derivative of lithium nickelate. “Lithium nickelate has long been researched as the material of choice for making cathodes, but it suffers from intrinsic structural and electrochemical instabilities,” says ORNL’s Ilias Belharouak, “in …
