Lithium Iron phosphate LiFePO4 (LFP) is extensively used in the Lithium ion battery field as cathode material. Its properties in terms of charge/discharge voltage, capacity, thermal stability and low toxicity make LFP one of the benchmark materials for energy storage applications.
We at Particular Materials synthesize nano LFP and we produce dispersions with excellent stability, monodispersity and fully disaggregated state.
Tipically, our Lithium iron phosphate LiFePO4 (LFP) nanoparticles have diameters in the 40-50 nanometers range.
Since poor electronic and ionic conductivity of the bare LFP nanoparticles could lead to several limitation in their practical use, we developed a peculiar treatment during the synthetic process to cover the single nanoparticle with a conductive carbon coating.
In order to be able to take advantage of the various properties of Lithium iron phosphate (LFP) nanoparticles, significant care needs to be taken in controlling size, monodispersity and crystalline structure.
We at Particular Materials synthesize nano LiFePO4 (LFP) and we produce dispersions with excellent stability, monodispersity, crystalline purity and fully disaggregated state.
The LFP nanoparticles are available in two different formats:
- LFP + carbon coating
Typical concentration in water are, by weight (w/w%):
LFP can also be provided as nanopowder.
