Abstract: Li2CoSiO4, a silicate olivine cathode for lithium rechargeable batteries, is synthesized for the first time by sol–gel method using polyacrylic acid (PAA) as the chelating agent. Coupled thermal and vibrational analysis of the gel and also the X-ray diffraction pattern confirms the formation of the sample at 800 °C. 1-Butyl-1-methyl pyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (BMPyTFSI) solutions of lithium bis(trifuloromethansulfonyl)imide (LiTFSI) having a concentration of 0.2 mol kg−1 is used as electrolyte. The electrochemical stability window of this electrolyte is found to be >5 V by linear sweep voltammetry technique. The com- patibility of Li2CoSiO4 with 0.2 mol kg−1 LiTFSI-BMPyTFSI electrolyte is tested by charge–discharge cycles which show charging and discharging capacities of about 204 and 32 mAh g−1, respectively, in the first cycle.
