An improved cathodic material has been obtained by doping vanadium oxide hydrogel with silver. Silver-doped vanadium pentoxides with a silver molar fraction ranging from 0.01 to 1 were synthesized. With the successful doping, the electronic conductivity of V2O5 was increased by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude. The electrochemical performance of the silver doped materials is very high, up to 4 moles of lithium per mole of silver-doped V2O5 were found to be reversibly intercalated. In addition, the lithium diffusion coefficient is found to be high in the silver-doped material and with a smaller dependence on the lithium intercalation level. These enhancements resulted in high rates of insertion and delivered capacities.
