Goodfellow Adds 6 New Products for Use in Li-ion Batteries

Goodfellow is pleased to announce the addition to our catalogue of six chemical compounds for use in Li-ion batteries. Each of these materials offers something different in terms of the variables associated with Li-ion batteries, such as energy density, potential safety, cost, recharging time, cycle life, scalability, etc. As you consider the requirements of your particular application, feel free to contact a member of the Goodfellow technical team by phone or at technical@goodfellow.com to discuss your specific needs.

A lithium-ion battery or Li-ion battery is a type of rechargeable battery commonly used for portable electronics and electric vehicles and growing in popularity for military and aerospace applications. They are lightweight and rechargeable with great capacity, attributes that have captured the attention of researchers, product designers and manufacturers in virtually every industry.

A lithium-ion battery consists of a cathode (positive electrode), an anode (negative electrode), and an electrolyte (used as a conductor) with a charge-discharge cycle.

Cathode materials*

LiCoO2 Lithium Cobalt Oxide

As one of the most common oxide cathode materials for traditional Li-ion batteries, LiCoO2 (LCO) is also under consideration for use in all solid-state batteries.

LiMn2O4 Lithium Manganese Oxide

The spinel lithium manganese oxide (LiMn2O4 or LMO) is an exceptional cathode material for aqueous and organic lithium-ion batteries due to its low cost, environmental friendliness and suitable potential capabilities.

LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 Lithium Nickel Manganese Oxide (LNMO)

Lithium nickel manganese oxides are promising, being nontoxic while having high thermal stability. They currently are attracting attention as alternative cathode electrode materials to the commercial LiCoO2 electrode.

Anode materials*

Li4Ti5O12 Lithium Titanium Oxide

LTO (Li4Ti5O12) has been highlighted as anode material for next-generation lithium ion secondary batteries due to advantages such as a high rate capability, excellent cyclic performance, and safety.

Solid electrolytes*

Li7La3Zr2O12 Lithium Lanthanum Zirconium Oxide (LLZO)

Solid-state electrolyte lithium lanthanum zirconium oxide garnet (LLZO) has attracted a great deal of attention due to its high room temperature conductivity of lithium ions and stability against lithium metal electrodes.

Li4SiO4 Lithium

This is a solid-state electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries and specifically for the production of solid-state thin film batteries (TFB).

Other products available from Goodfellow which can be used in lithium batteries

Li3PO4 Lithium Phosphate – a thin film solid electrolyte material known as LiPON used in thin film lithium batteries (TFB).

Copper foils (as current collectors), nickel foilscobalt foilsaluminium foils (battery slurry)

Graphite – for negative electrodes

Silicone elastomer in any form

PVDF films – used as binders, depending on the battery

*Available as sputtering targets, or in powder form upon request.
