The crystallographies of the prepared samples are investigated by the means of XRD, SEM, TEM, and Rietveld refinement ver. 2.1.1. From results, it is found that some monoclinic structure appeared in company with orthorhombic phase when Mn was substituted by a small amount of Cr (x < 0.05). With increasing of Cr-substitution lead to a crystalline structure change from orthorhombic to monoclinic and become monoclinic when x = 0.05. The average particle size decreases and uniformity increases, while the specific capacity also increases with amount of Cr-substitution. Among the prepared powders, sample prepared with x = 0.1 manifests the most promising electrochemical properties. The lowering in specific capacity in sample prepared with x = 0.15 may be attributed to the formation of LiCrO2. Advisor Committee Shu-huang Wu - advisor
