|20140093761||LITHIUM SECONDARY BATTERY - There is provided a lithium secondary battery. The positive electrode includes a positive electrode mixture layer provided on one side or both sides of the current collector. The positive electrode active material includes a lithium-containing composite oxide including lithium and a transition metal. At least a part of the lithium-containing composite oxide includes nickel as transition metal. The non-aqueous electrolyte includes a halogen-substituted cyclic carbonate at a content of 0.5 to 5 mass %, when manufacturing the lithium secondary battery. The side part of the battery case includes two wide surfaces opposed to each other. The two wide surfaces are wider than the other surfaces in a side view. The side part has such a cleavable groove that is cleaved when an internal pressure of the battery exceeds a threshold. The cleavable groove is provided at a portion to intersect with a diagonal of the wide surfaces in the side view.||04-03-2014|
|20130136988||NEGATIVE ELECTRODE FOR NON-AQUEOUS SECONDARY BATTERY, AND A NON-AQUEOUS SECONDARY BATTERY - [Objectives] The present invention provides a non-aqueous secondary battery in which a material containing Si and O as constituent elements is used in a negative electrode. The present invention provides a non-aqueous secondary battery having good charge discharge cycle characteristics, and suppressing the battery swelling associated with the charge and the discharge. Also, the present invention relates to a negative electrode that can provide the non-aqueous secondary battery. [Solution] The negative electrode includes a negative electrode active material, including a composite of a material containing Si and O as constitution elements (atom ratio x of O to Si is 0.5≦x≦1.5) in combination with a carbon material, and graphite. The graphite has an average particle diameter dg(μm) of 4 to 20 μm. The material containing Si and O as constitution elements has an average particle diameter ds(μm) of 1 μm or more. The ratio ds/dg (i.e., ds to dg) is 0.05 to 1. The material containing Si and O as constitution elements has a crystallite diameter of 50 nm or less, the crystallite diameter is calculated from a half width at a (220) plane of Si obtained by an X-ray diffraction method, using Scherrer Formula. In 100 mass % of the composite of the material containing Si and O as constitution elements, and the carbon material, a ratio of the material containing Si and O as constitution elements is 70 to 95 mass %.||05-30-2013|
