Abstract: Three techniques, i.e., pyrolysis of sucrose, spray of acetylene black, and propane vapor deposition, are adopted to coat carbon onto the surface of LiCoPO 4 particles, and their effects are compared. The LiCoPO 4/C composites are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), galvanostatic charge-discharge, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The results show that the coating techniques determine the property of carbon films formed on the surface of LiCoPO 4 particles, which further affect the performance of LiCoPO 4. A complete and homogeneous carbon layer is the key to a high electrochemical activity and stable cycle performance. Among these LiCoPO 4/C composites, the material processed via the deposition technique shows a more uniform carbon layer than that of the others, thus it exhibits a large reversible capacity of 130 mA h g -1 with favorable cyclability and rate capability in the voltage range of 3.0-5.0 V. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
