The elemental compositions, crystal structures, carbon contents, and morphologies of the prepared powders were investigated by ICP-AES, XRD, EA, and SEM, respectively. Furthermore, a micro-FTIR was used to study the surface of Li3V2(PO4)3 electrode before cycling and after 100 cycled, to reveal the formation of passive film on the cycled electrode. From the results of capacity retention study, it is found that partial substitution with Fe can improve the cycling performance of Li3V2(PO4)3 based samples. The powders with composition of Li3V1.86Fe0.21(PO4)3 and Li3V1.86Fe0.02(PO4)3 show the best capacity retention and the highest discharge capacity among the prepared Li3V2(1-x)Fe3x(PO4)3, and Li3V2(1-x)Fe2x(PO4)3 samples, respectively. Li3V1.86Fe0.21(PO4)3 shows second discharge capacity of 141.2 mAh/g and 90.1% retention after 30 cycles at 30oC with 5C rate, whereas Li3V2(PO4)3 shows second discharge capacity of 120.2 mAh/g and dropped to 80.1 mAh/g after 30th cycle at the same C-rate.
