Abstract

Employing neutron and X-ray powder diffraction analysis we have found that the compound at composition LiV2O5 formed at ambient temperature on insertion of Li into V2O5 has a structure which has been significantly altered from that of the original V2O5. The V2O5 host acts as a layered compound at high lithium contents: weak VO bonds are broken and neighboring layers both shift and buckle to accommodate the inserted lithium ions. The inserted Li ions are in tetrahedral coordination with oxygen.
