Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, as one of the most promising energy storage devices, have been developed to power an extensive range of applications, from electric vehicles (EVs) to cell phones as the key component of lithium ion batteries, cathode materials play a key role in determining the energy density and the cost. In recent years, lithium-rich manganese-based layered structure cathode materials are arousing significant attention owing to their extremely high capacity (over 250 mAh·g−1) and energy density (over 900 Wh·kg−1). In this work, an innovative strategy with Na & F co-doping was proposed to enhance the electrochemical performance of the lithium-rich manganese-based layered oxide Li1.2Ni0.2Mn0.6O2 for the first time. Notably, the structure stability and electrochemical performance of Na & F co-doped sample were significantly improved to an unprecedentedly level, which take both advantages of cations and anions. Consequently, the co-doped sample Li1.12Na0.08Ni0.2Mn0.6O1.95F0.05 shows an excellent cycling stability (100% after 100 cycles at 0.2 C) and a superior rate performance (167 mAh g−1 at 5 C). In addition, the proposed co-doping approach applied to enhance the electrochemical performance of Li1.2Ni0.2Mn0.6O2 can also be used to modulate other positive materials for lithium-ion batteries.
