Effect of chemistry and structure on voltage of Li intercalation oxides

With the aid of today's powerful computers, quantum mechanical methods are becoming accurate enough to determine the properties of materials before going into laborious and expensive synthesis processes. These `computer experiments' do not require any input other than the atomic numbers of the constituent species. In addition, they allow full control over the `experimental' parameters. In this way the effect of any parameter on the materials properties can be investigated, which is usually not possible in traditional experiments. We used the ab initio pseudopotential method to study the effects of chemistry and structure on the voltage obtained from intercalating Li ions into transition metal oxides. The effect of transition metal and anion chemistry was systematically studied by changing M in LiMO2, (M = Ti, V, Mn, Co, Ni, Cu and Zn) and X in LiCoX2 (X = Se, S and O), keeping the structure fixed at α-NaFeO2 layered structure. In addition, the effect of structure was studied by performing computer experiments on LiCoO2 and LiMnO2 in α-NaFeO2, LiScO2 and Al2MgO4 (spinel) structures. The computed voltages are in good agreement with experimental values. We found that, the electronic band structure and the extent of charge transfer between Li and O ions is correlated to the output voltage. We will explain how the output voltage is affected by the chemistry of the transition metal.

Effect of variable thermal conductivity and viscosity on single phase convective heat transfer in slip flow
KAKAÇ, SADIK; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Gozukara, Arif Cem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-08-01)
For a variety of fields in which micro-mechanical systems and electronic components are used, fluid flow and heat transfer at the microscale needs to be understood and modeled with an acceptable reliability. In general, models are prepared by making some extensions to the conventional theories by including the scaling effects that become important for microscale. Some of these effects are; axial conduction, viscous dissipation, and rarefaction. In addition to these effects, temperature variable thermal cond...
Effect of CNT impregnation on the mechanical and thermal properties of C/C-SiC composites
Tulbez, Simge; ESEN, ZİYA; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (2020-06-01)
The present study investigates the effect of additional carbon source, in the form of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), on mechanical and thermal properties of carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C/C-SiC) ceramic matrix composites (CMC) produced by liquid silicon infiltration (LSI) technique. The CNTs used in this study were impregnated into the C/C preforms before the liquid silicon infiltration stage. The results showed that the addition of excess carbon to the C/C preforms in the form of CNTs enhanced Si inf...

The effect of gamma-irradiation and silver doping on the properties of YBCO superconductors has been studied by electrical resistance measurements and x-ray diffraction techniques. The zero-resistance superconducting transition temperature of (YBCO)(1-x)Ag-x systematically increase by about 2 K with an increase of Ag content up to x = 0.04. Further increase in Ag content decreases the transition temperature. The normal-state resistance decreases up to a factor of 3.4 with an increase of Ag content. No signi...
Effects of oxidative functionalization and aminosilanization of carbon nanotubes on the mechanical and thermal properties of polyamide 6 nanocomposites
Kaynak, Cevdet (SAGE Publications, 2013-11-13)
The focus of this study is to investigate the effects of oxidative functionalized carbon nanotubes (f-CNTs) and aminosilanized carbon nanotubes (s-CNTs) on the mechanical and thermal properties of polyamide 6 nanocomposites. Oxidation of nanotube surfaces was conducted with sulfuric acid/nitric acid mixture and then aminosilanization was carried out with -aminopropyltriethoxysilane. Nanocomposites were compounded by melt mixing technique and shaped by injection molding. Scanning electron microscopy images r...
Effect of magnesium on FOX-7 and its tautomers-A DFT treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi (2018-06-01)
FOX-7 and its cisoid and transoid 1,5-tautomers as well as magnesium composites of all have been investigated quantum chemically within the restrictions of density functional theory (B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p)). Certain physico-chemical and quantum chemical properties, energies, stabilities, calculated IR and UV-VIS spectra are discussed. The influence of magnesium atom is investigated. It has been found that in FOX-7 composites the magnesium is not a silent ingredient, but interacts with the organic constituents....
