Two spinel lithium manganese oxides of different crystallinity were prepared by sol-gel process and were studied by using inducfively coupled plasma,X-ray diffraction,scaning electron micrographs,constant charging and discharging,cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectrometry,the results show that the sample treated under 700 ℃ has higher crystallinity than the sample treated under 500 ℃,however,the sample with lower crystallinity has higher discharge capacity and better cyclic performance that due to quicker charge exchange speed and quicker diffusion speed of Li-ion.
