Unformatted text preview: The role of tetrahedral site in layered compound Tetrahedral site is face sharing with octahedral site Two cannot be simultaneously occupied. Each (O) site is surounded by three (T) sites within the same layer 1 EMA 6446 Solid State Ionics - Rechargeable Batteries The role of the tetrahedral sites 2 EMA 6446 Solid State Ionics - Rechargeable Batteries Create tri-vacancy around the (T) site C. P. Grey et al, Electrochem. Sol.

Small energy barrier for some M ion to go to the tetrahedral site! 8 EMA 6446 Solid State Ionics - Rechargeable Batteries Important to understand structures in details Because the following properties of battery materials are connected to structures a. Diffusion of lithium b. Electronic conductivity c.
