Two lithium iron oxides r-Li0.8H0.2FeO2 (ramsdellite-type) and o-Li0.7H0.3FeO2 (orthorhombic structure) have been synthesised by an ion exchange reaction between respectively α-FeOOH and γ-FeOOH, and C2H5OLi at 170 °C and 140 °C. The reaction products were characterised through elemental analyses, infrared spectroscopy, density measurements and X-ray diffraction. The refinement of the powder XRD patterns of r-Li0.8H0.2FeO2 and o-Li0.7H0.3FeO2 has been performed by the Rietveld method and the results show that the products are isostructural to their precursors.

Electrochemical measurements of Li1−xHxFeO2/Li have been made in lithium cells in the 1.5 – 5 V range. Their elemental analyses and the study of X-ray diffraction results and Mössbauer spectroscopy measurements show the instability of Fe4+ in the electrochemically produced species in the electrochemical cell, and therefore the difficulty of cycling on the couple FeIV/FeIII.
