High-voltage LiCoO2 has attracted much interest owing to the high specific energy density. But the poor cycling performance and inferior rate capacity of LiCoO2 at a high voltage (≥4.5 V) has restricted the practical applications. Herein, we propose to improve the electrochemical performances of LiCoO2 at high voltage through a synergy of Al-doping and Li2TiO3-coating. In compared to bare LiCoO2, Al-doped LiCoO2 and Li2TiO3-coated LiCoO2, the cycle performance, the rate capability and the polarization of Al-doped and Li2TiO3-coated LiCoO2 shows a larger improvement, which can be attributed to the synergic effects of Al-doping and Li2TiO3-coating. Firstly, Al doping expands the interlayer spacing which decreases the Li-ion diffusion barrier and enhances the coefficient of Li-ion diffusion. This benefits to the rate capability. Secondly, Al doping enhances the layered structure stability due to the larger Al–O bonding energy (ΔH 298 K t (Al–O) = 512 kJmol−1) than that of Co–O (ΔH 298 K t (Co–O) = 368 kJmol−1). Thirdly, the coating layer of Li2TiO3 mitigates the surface side reactions and further enhances the cycling performance. Moreover, the coating layer of Li2TiO3 as a Li+-conductor is also favorable to the Li+ diffusion and the rate capability. This synergic strategy can also be extended to the modification of other cathode materials.
