LiFePO4/C compounds of co-doping in Li-site and Fe-site were synthesized with traditional solid state reaction. The electro- chemical and physical properties of these samples were characterized by XRD, SEM and EA. The substitution in Li-site and Fe-site led to the modifications of the structure and electrochemical performance such as initial capacity, capacity fading and polarization. The lattice constants and electrochemical performance of Sr-doped sample were larger and poorer than these of other doping samples. The co-doping samples with 1% M (Mo6+ and Nd5+) and 3% Mn2+ exhibited excellent electrochemical performance, especially in high rate. Moreover, the co-doping samples with 6% Mn2+ exhibited mild capacity fading. From these results, it was suggested that the appropriate co-doping in Li- site and Fe-site could improve both electronic and ionic conductivities of LiFePO4, which may pose to some modifications of its electro- chemical performance.
