At present, the lithium-rich metal oxide Li1+zMO2 (M = Ni, Co, Mn, etc.) is one of the promising cathodes materials for high-energy lithium-ion batteries. In this work, we report the effect of different doping amounts of fluoride ions on the microstructural and electrochemical properties of Li[Li0.2Mn0.54Ni0.13Co0.13]O2 cathode material. At low doping levels, the fluoride ions substituted the oxygen ions. When the doped fluorine was more than the theoretical limit of x = 0.15, LiF-based material was attached on the surface of the material, offering better cycling performance of battery. With the doping effect, a discharge capacity of 230 mAh/g and a capacity retention rate of 98% were found respectively, which are better than the pristine electrode.
