  • In the field of materials for Lithium ion batteries, the lithium iron phosphate LiFePO4 has been proven for use as a positive electrode due to its good resistance to thermal degradation and overcharge, safety and
    low cost. The use of nanostructured materials would improve its
    efficiency. This work shows the results of the synthesis of
    nanostructured materials with functional properties for Lithium
    batteries through aerosol techniques. The Spray Pyrolysis method allows
    synthesizing nanostructured particles with spherical geometry, not
    agglomerates, with narrow distribution of particle size and homogeneous
    composition in respect to a precursor solution. Experimental techniques
    were focused on the morphological (SEM and TEM), structural (XRD and
    HRTEM-SAED), chemical (EDS) and electrochemical characterization.
