Lithium Ion Cathode Materials. The type of cathode chosen can affect the energy density, power density, safety, cycle life, and cost of the overall battery, and this is why researchers are constantly experimenting. These five different types of cathode materials are lithium cobalt oxide (lco), lithium iron phosphate (lfp), lithium manganese oxide (lmo), lithium nickel manganese cobalt (nmc), and lithium, nickel, cobalt, aluminum (nca).
(1) the material contain a readily reducible/ oxidizable ion, for example a transition metal. Today's cathode materials typically contain lithium, nickel, and cobalt compounds. There are significant scientific and commercial challenges to achieving better cathode design, discovering new materials and developing a deeper understanding of the.
