Al3+ doped spinel structured cathode active nanoparticles were produced by microwave hydrothermal synthesis. Structural characterization of as synthesized nanoparticles was performed by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) Spectroscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Electrochemical characteristics of the material have been investigated by packaging cell material into a CR 2016 button cells. All electrochemical experiments were carried out using lithium metal foil as the counter electrode. First discharge capacitiy of doped material is 303 mAh/g at 0.1 C rate. We have obtained 69 mAh/g specific capacity and 98.7 percent capacity retention for the first cycle at 0.5 C rate.
