LiFePO_(4) was synthesized by means of hydrothermal reaction,in which PVA acts as disperser and glucose as carbon source.The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction,scanning electron microscopy and electrochemical measurement.SEM results show that the sample is homogeneously composed of grains with a particle size of ca.200nm.In the charge/discharge test,the products exhibited a 3.45V discharge voltage plateau and a maximum specific capacity of 140mAh/g.After 40 cycles,its capacity only declined by 2.1%.Besides these,the mechanism for the influence of the particle size and carbon coating on the electrochemical property of LiFePO_(4)material was discussed in detail.
