Developing new cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries using Australian mineral resources

Funding: 2002: $83,000
2003: $84,000
2004: $84,000

Project Member(s): Wang, G.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Projects)

Start year: 2002

Summary: This project will bring together expertise in electrochmistry, materials science and structure characterisation to conduct collaborative research with Australian industry partners, Queensland Nickel Technology Pty Ltd and Sons of Gwalia Ltd. The aims of this project will be to investigate a series of cathode materials for use in lithium-ion batteries. The significance of this research is that the technology for preparing a series of new electrode materials for lithium-ion batteries will be developed by taking advantage of abundant Australian minerals resourecs. The expected outcomes will be to identify several new cathode materials with high energy density, long cycle life, low toxity and low cost.
