Abstract / Full Text

Li3Ti0.75(MoO4)3 compound crystallizes in lyonsite type structure. The structure was prepared by the solid state reaction method. Electrochemical lithium insertion was performed into sample for the first time. Preliminary studies were carried out to analyze the sample as electrode material for Li-ion batteries. The electrochemical charge discharge curves shows insertion of 4.8Li is obtained in sample when discharged to 1.5 V and extraction of 3.3Li is observed during charge. A reversible capacity of 112 mA h/g is observed after 25 cycles.
