    Abstract

    Abstract Image

    A lithium ion battery cathode material is proposed as a case study to investigate ionic solids in an undergraduate inorganic chemistry course. The concepts of unit cell, ionic lattice arrangements, nonstoichiometric compounds, and the thermodynamics of defects in crystals are introduced to students within the framework of research into materials for rechargeable batteries.
