20_11b/2008Inside Front Cover: Molten Salt Synthesis and High Rate Performance of the “Desert-Rose” form of LiCoO2 (Adv. Mater. 11/2008)

On p. 2206, Hailong Chen and Clare P. Grey describe the molten-salt synthesis of a new morphology for a cathode material used widely in lithium batteries, LiCoO2, with a similar structure, shown on the cover, to that seen for the “desert-rose” morphology of the mineral gypsum. The material shows excellent capacity at high rates; a remarkable difference to the material used commercially.
