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 cobalt(III) oxide 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.

Application

Critical substance in the quest for high performance, advanced batteries.
Lithium cobalt(III) oxide (LiCoO2) can be used as a cathode material with a specific capacity of ~274 mAhg−1 for the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Commercially, these LiCoO2 fabricated Li-ion batteries can be used in a majority of smartphones. LiCoO2 can also be used in the formation of fuel cells.
