Lithium Ion

Manganese is increasingly used in the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries as one of the key components of cathodes to power devices such as power tools or e-bikes and is increasingly used in energy storage systems. Prince’s EMD products are well suited for cathode mix as well as energy management for portable, solar, and wind power and green vehicles (from hybrids to full electric).

Prince has developed innovative, high purity products (including physically and chemically consistent manganese salts and oxides) to suit these markets. Products include MnSO4 HP, a high purity sulfate for  Li NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) and a new range of Mn3O4 LF and LB to produce LMO (Lithium Manganese Oxide) cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries.


Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) is a promising cathode technology with high usage expectations due to its high performance, safety, and calendar life. It is already being used in electric vehicles. Prince provides manganese salts, critical to the NMC cathode performance.

Lithium manganese oxide (LMO) is one of the three cathodic materials technology that uses manganese. To ensure quality of the cathode, Prince provides the purest manganese oxide with a range of high performance products used in consumer electronics for portable applications and in automotive applications. The cathode is a critical active component, directly impacting battery performance.

  • Mn3O4 LB
  • EMD LF


Lithium manganese iron phosphate (LMFP) is a technology mix that adds manganese to the already existing LFP cathode technology. The amount of manganese added improves the performance of the cathode.
