Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxides

NMC

Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxides are a family of mixed metal oxides of lithium, nickel, manganese and cobalt. Nickel is known for its high specific energy, but poor stability. Manganese has low specific energy but offers the ability to form spinel structures that allow low internal resistance. Ni-rich NMC has a high discharge capacity Mn-rich compositions maintain better cycle life … Read more

Lithium Ion Cell

slice through a lithium ion cell schematic

In a rechargeable lithium ion battery lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge, and back when charging. The cathode is a lithium transition metal oxide, eg manganese or cobalt or a combination of transitional metals. The anode is a graphite-based material, which can intercalate or release lithium. When discharge … Read more
