Highly dispersed NaFeF3 particles were prepared at 280 °C by liquid-phase synthesis using high-boiling-point organic solution, and their electrochemical properties were studied by charge and discharge measurements. TEM observation clarified that the resultant NaFeF3 particles had uniform particle sizes of ca. 10-20, 100-200, and 500-600 nm, which could be controlled by the composition of the synthetic solution. The discharge capacities were higher for NaFeF3 that had smaller particle sizes, particularly at a rate of 0.1 C or higher, while the discharge capacities obtained at a rate of 0.01 C between 1.5 and 4.5 V were almost the same in the range 170-181 mAh g-1 regardless of the particle size of NaFeF 3. These results clearly indicate that the use of well-dispersed nano-sized NaFeF3 particles should effectively improve the rate performance of NaFeF3.
