We investigate the influence of particle size and crystal orientation on the electrochemical behavior of carbon-coated LiFePO4 prepared by a hydrothermal synthesis in the presence of a polymeric surfactant and a source of carbon. We evaluated the charge/discharge profiles of two samples, one constituted by particles in the micrometer range with a platelet-like shape (large ac facet and (020) crystal orientation) and another made of sub-micrometer-rounded particles with a random crystal orientation. At low current rates the crystal orientation seems to be the prevailing factor, whereas at high current rates smaller particles can allow a shorter electronic conduction path, so reducing the resistance experienced by Li ions during diffusion

Abstract

We investigate the influence of particle size and crystal orientation on the electrochemical behavior of carbon-coated LiFePO4 prepared by a hydrothermal synthesis in the presence of a polymeric surfactant and a source of carbon. We evaluated the charge/discharge profiles of two samples, one constituted by particles in the micrometer range with a platelet-like shape (large ac facet and (020) crystal orientation) and another made of sub-micrometer-rounded particles with a random crystal orientation. At low current rates the crystal orientation seems to be the prevailing factor, whereas at high current rates smaller particles can allow a shorter electronic conduction path, so reducing the resistance experienced by Li ions during diffusion
