In this study, the multicomponent electrode approach was used in an attempt to simultaneously improve the cell's specific energy values by shifting the cathode's voltage up to the 5V-region, combined with the increased specific capacity via addition of the second electrode component. The electrode materials were prepared by variety of synthetic methods (e.g. solid state, sol-gel, mechanical mixing etc.) and tested for lithium-ion intercalation properties. Structural properties and morphology of synthesized materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) methods. The prospective 5V cathode materials were investigated as cathodes in the cells with lithium-metal counter electrode.
