Study of the Lithium Diffusion Properties and High Rate Performance of TiNb 6 O 17 as an Anode in Lithium Secondary Battery

Sci Rep. 2017 Nov 30;7(1):16617. doi: 10.1038/s41598-017-16711-9.


TiNb6O17 and TiNb2O7 were synthesized using a solid-state method. The techniques were used to assess the electrochemical performance and lithium diffusion kinetics of TiNb6O17 related to the unit cell volume with TiNb2O7. The charge-discharge curves and cyclic voltammetry revealed TiNb6O17 to have a similar redox potential to TiNb2O7 as well as a high discharge capacity. The rate performance of TiNb6O17 was measured using a rate capability test. SSCV and EIS showed that TiNb6O17 had higher lithium diffusion coefficients during the charging. From GITT, the lithium diffusion coefficients at the phase transition region showed the largest increase from TiNb2O7 to TiNb6O17.
