Partial lithium substitution with nickel (0.25 of Ni2+ ion) in the previously reported Li1.5Fe0.5Ti1.5(PO4)3/C (LFTP@C) was performed to improve its structural and electrochemical properties. The new LiNi0.25Fe0.5Ti1.5(PO4)3/C (LNFTP@C) material was then tested as electrode for lithium ion batteries. In the voltage window 1.85V–3.0 V vs. Li+/Li, attractive electrochemical performances were...
