Electric results: The rate capability can be improved in lithium ion batteries (LIBs) by reducing the dimensions of the active material; however, the LIBs would then have insufficient electrode density. To overcome this problem, carbon-coated single-crystal LiMn2O4 nanoparticle clusters were synthesized as a cathode material for LIBs; this material can be densely packed on the current collector.
