View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Composite materials having domains of lithium oxometallates in an electronically conductive matrix, and methods of making such composite materials are provided. Exemplary lithiated metals oxides include, for example, doped or undoped lithium oxometallates of the formula Li.sub.8M.sup.aO.sub.6 and/or Li.sub.7M.sup.bO.sub.6, wherein M.sup.a represents Zr and/or Sn, and M.sup.b represents Nb and/or Ta. Such composite materials can be used in lithium ion batteries, for example, as an active material such as an electrode that can store charge in the form of lithium ions.
