The materials were analysed by XRD, FESEM, particle size distribution and BET to achieve an extensive overview of the particles. The electrochemical properties were examined by galvanostatic charging and discharging at different C-rates as well as EIS at different SOCs using LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4/Li coins cells. To improve the electrochemical properties additional grinding and temperature treatments were used. Their influence on the electrochemical properties was investigated by analysing the capacity slippage as well as the electrolyte-, surface film- and the charge transfer resistance. These results will show that the same electrochemical properties can be achieved for the LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4cathode material when changing and upscaling the synthesis methods.
