  • Publication number: 20230032577
    Abstract: A positive-electrode active material for nonaqueous-electrolyte secondary batteries which comprises a given lithium-transition metal composite oxide haying a lamellar structure and a compound A containing Ca and/or Sr, the compound A being present on the surface of or at the boundaries of primary particles of the lithium-transition metal composite oxide. The lamellar structure includes an Li layer where Li reversibly goes in and out, and the proportion of non-lithium metallic element(s) present in the Li layer is 0.7-3.0 mol % with respect to the total amount of the non-lithium metallic elements contained in the lithium-transition metal composite oxide. In analysis by X-ray diffraction, the positive-electrode active material gives an X-ray diffraction pattern in which the ratio of the half-band width in of a diffraction peak for the (003) plane to the half-band width n of a diffraction peak for the (104) plane, m/n, is 0.7.5?m/n?1.0.
