dc.description.abstractThe silicate compounds Li2MSiO4 (where M = Mn, Fe, Co) have received significant attention recently as Li intercalation electrodes. Overwhelmingly they exhibit relatively poor kinetics of ion intercalation. By synthesizing Li-rich solid solutions of the form Li2+2xFe1−xSiO4 (with 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.3), the structural requirements for fast ion transport and hence relatively fast intercalation have been identified. Specifically the presence of additional Li+ in interstitial sites, not normally occupied in the stoichiometric Li2FeSiO4 compound, enhances ion transport by more than two orders of magnitude. The results, obtained by combining electrochemical measurements, with powder X-ray and neutron diffraction and atomistic modeling of the ion dynamics, provide valuable guidance in designing future intercalation electrodes with high Li-ion transport and, hence, fast electrode kinetics.
