This project presents the characterization of iron phthalocyanine (FePc) as the cathode active material to be used in higher specific lithium storage and energy density lithium-ion cells/batteries. Theoretical work suggested the control of the active material particle size for its optimum utilization during the discharge of lithium-ion cells. Also, the experimental work reported the lithium storage in FePc is equivalent to 2050 mAh/g FePc that was encouraging to characterize FePc as a potential cathode material. In experimental work, two types of cells were tested: 1) high temperature polyethylene oxide electrolyte-based lithium/FePc cells and 2) room temperature organic liquid electrolyte-based lithium/FePc cells. Estimating the theoretical lithium storage capacity of the cathode active material, and the experimental results from the ongoing research/development work on the lithium/iron phthalocyanine cells are included in this project.
