A Sn phosphate was successfully coated to the surface of LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2particles using a new method we developed. The elements Sn and P were observed to be uniformly distributed on the surface of the LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2After the Sn phosphate coating, the onset temperature shifted up to about 250 °C, and the exothermic value also decreased to 116.3 J/g, i.e. the thermal stability of the material was enhanced. The rate capability of the 1 wt% Sn phosphate-coated LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2materials was enhanced at room temperature and 60 °C. However, a 3 wt% Sn phosphate coating degraded the electrochemical performance. The 1 wt% Sn phosphate-coated material showed improved cycle performance compared to that of the bare material at room temperature and 60 °C. It is believed that the oxide coating layer prevented direct contact with the organic electrolyte. © J. New Mat. Electrochem. Systems.
