By selecting LiOH·H_(2)O and Mn(CH_(3)COO)_(2)2H_(2)O as starting-materials,the positive materials with the structure characterization of Li_(4)Mn_(5)O_(12)and composition of Li_(3.22)Na_(0.569)Mn_(5.78)O_(12.0)were prepared by two-phase sintering method consisted of microwave and solid-state sintering processes.XRD patterns data showed that a pure Li_(4)Mn_(5)O_(12)phase was obtained by the fore-treatment of microwave sintering and the post-treatment of the solid-state sintering at 380℃.The charge-discharge tests showed that the newly prepared sample exhibited an initial capacity of 132 mAh·g~(-1)and its capacity faded after 100 cycles was 6.8% lower as compared with 1st cycle capacity in the voltage range of 4.5 to 2.5 V.The sample stored for 4 months exhibited an initial capacity of 122 mAh·g~(-1)and its capacity faded after 100 cycles was 17.4% lower than its 1st cycle capacity in the same voltage range.The Mn-O bond of the sample strengthened by microwave sintering process.
