General description

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.
Lithium nickel dioxide (LNO) 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.


LNO can be used as a cathode material with a high discharge voltage of 4V and a high diffusion coefficient of ~10−8-10−10 cm2s−1. It has a high specific capacity and can be used the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries.
Cathode material with high capacity and good reversibility for rechargeable Lithium ion batteries. Sub-micron particle size results in increased surface area of electrodes, thus improving their performance.
