We have fabricated self-assembled LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2 nanosheets via a facile synthesis method combining coprecipitation with the hydrothermal method. Scanning electron microscopic images show that the self-assembly processes for the LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2 nanosheets depend on the reaction time and temperature. The nanosheet structure is uniform, and the width and thickness of the nanosheets are in the ranges of 0.7–1.5 μm and 10–100 nm, respectively. As a cathode material, the as-synthesized LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2 nanosheets have demonstrated outstanding electrochemical performance. The initial specific capacity was 193 mAh g–1, and the capacity was maintained at 189 mAh g–1 after 100 cycles at 0.2 C, and 155 mAh g–1 at 1 C (after 1000 cycles). The LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2 nanosheets have efficient contact with the electrolyte and short Li+ diffusion paths, as well as sufficient void spaces to accommodate large volume variation. The nanosheets are thus beneficial to the diffusion of Li+ in the electrode. The enhanced electrical conductance and excellent capacity demonstrate the great potential of LiNi1/3Co1/3Mn1/3O2 nanosheets for energy storage applications.
