Recently, niobium tungsten oxide has garnered considerable attention owing to its excellent Li-ion diffusion rate and prominent structural stability during charge-discharge cycles. Here, a cathode material (LiNi0.8Co0.1Mn0.1O2, NCM811) for Li-ion batteries is successfully coated with Li-ion conductive Li(2.09)W(0.9)Nb(0.1)O(4)using a simple wet-chemical coating method followed by high-temperature sintering. A physicochemical phase analysis reveals that a 4-5-nm-thick coating with a Li(2.09)W(0.9)Nb(0.1)O(4)crystal structure is evenly distributed on the surface of the cathode particles. Among cathodes coated with different amounts of material, the one coated with 0.5 wt% Li(2.09)W(0.9)Nb(0.1)O(4)yielded the best overall performance, with a high discharge capacity of 136.8 mAh g(-1)at 10 C and long-term cycling stability with a capacity retention of 91.7% after 100 cycles at 1 C. This excellent electrochemical performance can be attributed to the coating's ability to prevent the impedance from increasing and the Li-ion diffusion coefficient from decaying. In addition, it protects the cathode from side reactions and stabilizes the structure during cycling.
