Abstract [en]

A group of oxohalides, where Ni3Sb4O6F6 is one example, has been investigated with respect to its electrochemical reactions toward Li+/Li. In situ and ex situ XRD measurements reveal that the original structure collapses and the material becomes amorphous upon insertion of Li at low potentials versus Li+/Li. With continued cycling, a nanocrystalline phase of NiSb, which reacts reversibly with Li, appears and steadily grows more stable. Electrochemical experiments (i.e., chronopotentiometry and cyclic voltammetry) show that multiple reactions of both conversion- and alloying-type are active in the system. High storage capacities are achieved initially but with rapid fading as a consequence of a limited reversibility of the Ni2+/Ni redox process, as shown by X-ray absorption spectroscopy of the first discharge/charge cycle. Stable cycling can be achieved by optimizing the cutoff potentials (i.e., excluding poorly reversible reactions at high and low voltages, respectively), yielding long-term cycling with a practical gravimetric capacity of similar to 200 mAh g(-1).
