LiFePO4/carbon-network composite was synthesized by a high temperature solid-state method using the natural sawdust as carbon precursor. The microstructure of the as-synthesized sample was characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), respectively. The results revealed that the LiFePO4 particles with diameters ranging from 30 to 150 nm were well connected by carbon networks. The electrochemical performance of the composite was characterized using galvanostatic charge-discharge technique. The initial discharge capacity of LiFePO4/carbon-network cathode reached 126 mAh x g(-1) with 0.2 C rate.
