High-entropy oxides (HEOs) have gained significant attention from lithium-ion batteries since they can present cycling stability and possess a high specific capacity. While many studies have focused on discovering new high entropy oxides by changing their components, the influence of the synthesis environment on the structural properties and thus electrochemical behavior remain unresolved. Herein, we studied the effect of the synthesis environment, which is argon and air on the structural and electrochemical properties of (FeMnCrCoZn)(3)O-4 powders. We observed that the synthesis atmosphere affects greatly oxygen vacancy formation. The sample synthesized under an argon atmosphere (HESO-Ar) shows enhanced cycling and rate performances. Our work can open up new opportunities in designing HEO-based anodes and utilizing other HEO-based functional materials by altering and controlling the synthesis environment.


Electrochemical Performance of (MgCoNiZn)(1-x)LixO High-Entropy Oxides in Lithium-Ion Batteries
Lökçü, Ersu; Toparlı, Çiğdem; Anık, Mustafa (2020-05-01)
High-entropy oxides (HEOs), which are a new class of single-phase solid solution materials, have recently attracted significant attention as an anode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In this study, (MgCoNiZn)(1-x)LixO (x = 0.05, 0.15, 0.25, and 0.35) HEOs were synthesized and their electrochemical performances as the anode material were observed in LIBs. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis showed that the increase in the lithium cation concentration causes generation of more oxygen vac...
The electrochemical stability of lithium metal oxides against metalreduction
Ceder, Gerbrand; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (1998-06-01)
The possibility of metal reduction during the charging of secondary lithium batteries with LixMO2 cathodes is investigated. Loss of active material due to metal reduction can be one of the causes of capacity decay in these batteries after repeated charging. First principles methods are used to calculate the metal reduction potentials in layered LixMO2 compounds where M = Ti, V, Mn, Fe, Co or Ni. It is found that, for several of these compositions, the metal ions may preferably reduce before the lithium ion ...
Effect of cooling rate on microstructure and high temperature stability of rapidly solidified Al-Fe-V-Si alloys
Kalkanlı, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 1999-01-01)
Recently, AI-Fe-V-Si alloys have received more attention owing to their high temperature stability associated with vanadium rich precipitates and silicides. In this work, a series of alloys was prepared and processed by melt spinning and gas atomisation to observe the effect of solidification rate on crystal structures existing in both as cast and heat treated conditions. This study covers their microstructural examination and crystallography. The composition of these alloys was Al-(6.8-7.8)Fe-( 1.0-3)V-(1....
Development and characterization of catalyst materials of zinc-air batteries
Arslan Hamat, Burcu; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2021-2-12)
Recently, primary and secondary zinc-air batteries have attracted considerable attention due to their high energy density, safety, availability and low cost. Zinc-air batteries generate electricity through a redox reaction between zinc and oxygen in air. Zinc-air batteries have higher theoretical energy density due to abundant supply of oxygen from the atmosphere. However, poor efficiency of the oxygen reduction (ORR) and evolution reactions(OER)taking place at the cathode limits the use of zinc-ai...
Effect of Electrolyte-to-Sulfur Ratio in the Cell on the Li-S Battery Performance
Emerce, Nur Ber; Eroglu, Damla (The Electrochemical Society, 2019-05-02)
The effect of electrolyte-to-sulfur (E/S) ratio on the electrochemical and cell- and systems-level performance of a Li-S battery is investigated through modeling efforts. A 1-D electrochemical model is proposed predicting the cell voltage at 60% discharge depth. In the model, increasing electrolyte amount improves the cell voltage by linearly increasing the cathode exchange current density, which is the single kinetic model parameter. Moreover, cathode specific capacity is either defined as a linear functio...
