Li4Ti5O12 Synthesis with High Specific Surface Area and Single Phase
ABSTRACT
We have investigated a novel Li4Ti5O12 synthesis with high specific surface area, high crystallization and single phase and its mechanism. The method was performed with a solid phase synthesis by using CH3COOLi·2H2O and anatase TiO2 via Li2TiO3 as an intermediate in pre-sintering at 500°C and sintering at 750°C. This result showed specific surface area of 12 m2/g and single phase- Li4Ti5O12 by applying the high specific surface anatase TiO2 as a precursor.
