    , Article Journal of Materials Chemistry A ; Vol. 2, issue. 45 , Sep , 2014 , p. 19451-19460 Kalantarian, M. M ; Oghbaei, M ; Asgari, S ; Ferrari, S ; Capsoni, D ; Mustarelli, P ; Sharif University of Technology
    One of the most relevant negative characteristics of high-capacity cathodes for lithium batteries is indeed non-flat voltage-time (V-t) or voltage-capacity (V-C) behaviour during charge-discharge. A clear rationale for this behaviour has not yet been addressed in the literature. Here, by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations corroborated by basic experimental electrochemical characterization, we investigated both the thermodynamic and the kinetic aspects relevant to voltage variations during charge-discharge of Li2FeSiO4 intended as a model case. A simple physical model allowed us to take into account all the experimental evidence. We suggested that voltage deviations from...

    This study has investigated the effect of carbon coating on the electrochemical performance of SnO2 Nanowires (NWs) as an electrode along with a bis (trifluoromethane) sulfonimide lithium (LiTFSI)-based electrolyte in a lithium-ion battery (LIB). The vapor-liquid-solid approach has been used to grow SnO2 NWs on the stainless steel mesh current collector. The obtained results have demonstrated that the utilization of the LiTFSI-based electrolyte improved the battery performance with the SnO2 NWs electrode over the LiPF6-based electrolyte. This may be due to the formation of a stable and thin solid electrolyte interphase layer. Since bare SnO2 NWs exhibit inferior cycling stability due to...
