New Structure Model for Lithium Nickel Batteries

  • M.A. Monge (a1), E. Gutiérrez-Puebla (a1), I. Rasines (a2) and J.A. Campa (a3)

After growing black colored single crystals of LixNi1−xO (x = 0.27) and solving its crystal structure, a model is proposed as an alternative to the structural type admitted for LixNi1−xO. The new rhombohedral cell consists of a cubic close packing of oxygens in which the alternation of two kind of mixed layers containing Li and Ni in different ratios can be detected along the c direction. This model implies a Li order incompatible with the alternation of Ni layers, one of them pure and the other containing some Li. The results of magnetization measurements look consistent with the new structural type, and reveal that LixNi1−xO behaves as mictomagnetic.
