LiCo0.5Fe0.5O2 was prepared by sol–gel method. The sample had spinel, cubic and hexagonal phases up to 873 K and a single hexagonal phase above 1,073 K. The magnetic properties were studied at room temperature and at 77 K. The large coercivities observed for the samples annealed at 1,073 and 1,273 K show that these samples do not exhibit a simple antiferromagnetic ordering. From the Mössbauer and magnetization measurements, it is concluded that the hexagonal phase is only an antiferromagnet. The above results clearly demonstrate that the simple aqueousbased sol–gel process developed in this work provides a viable method to synthesize the fine cuboidal particles that display discharge capacity as high as ≈165 mAh/g, which is higher than the value obtained by M. Holzapfel et al. (Holzapfel M, Schreiner R, Ott A, Electrochim Acta 46:1063, 2001) for their samples synthesized by using the ion exchange method. This work suggests that the approaches based on solution chemistry are viable processes for synthesizing good quality electrode material.
