Abstract In this paper, we report the synthesis, the physical properties and the electrochemical features of the lithium nickel-cobalt oxide cathode materials prepared by a combustion method at moderate temperature. Structural properties were investigated by X-ray diffraction, Raman scattering and FTIR. Spectroscopic measurements show unambiguously that the �nal product is identi�ed as a modi�ed-spinel structure (Fd3m space group) with the stoichiometric formula Li2 Ni0:5Co0:5 2O4. Electrochemical cells Li Li2 Ni0:5Co0:5 2O4 were fabricated using an organic electrolyte and their performances were tested. For a modi�ed-spinel Li2 Ni0:5Co0:5 2O4 structure the chemical diffusion coef�cient of Li ions is around 10 �y10 cm2s, which is lower than for a layered LiNi0:5Co0:5O2 host matrix.
