General description

Lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) is a class of electrode material that can be used in the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries consist of anode, cathode, and electrolyte with a charge-discharge cycle. These materials enable the formation of greener and sustainable batteries for electrical energy storage.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.


NMC is a novel lithium insertion electrode material for advanced lithium-ion batteries. Mn doping significantly increases the thermal stability besides increasing the electrochemical charge-discharge behavior.
NMC powder has a layered structure and can be used as an active cathode material. It can further be used in combination with single electrolyte interphase (SEI) for the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries.
