The effects of Li2SiO3on the phase structure, morphology and electrochemical performance of the materials were investigated. As x increases, the structure and electrochemical properties of the materials are tailored. The cathode material with x = 0.10 delivers ultrahigh initial discharge capacity ∼150.3 mAh g−1, which is 24.4% larger than that of the pristine LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4(120.8 mAh g−1). The Li2SiO3-composited LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4materials present an enhanced cycling stability, better rate performance and lower charge transfer resistance. These excellent electrochemical properties indicate that the compositing of fast Li+-ion conductor Li2SiO3is an effective method to enhance the electrochemical performance of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4-based cathode materials.
