The formation reaction of LiFePO4 from decomposition of precursors LiOH, FeSO4. 7H2O and (NH4) 2HPO4 with mole ratio of Li: Fe: P= 1: 1: 1 was investigated. The experiment was carried out by thermogravimetric differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA) method using nitrogen as atmosphere at a constant heating rate to obtain kinetic constant parameters. Several heating rates were selected, viz. 5, 7, 10, 15, 17.5, 22.5 and 25 C min-1. Activation energy, pre-exponential factor and reaction order were taken using Kissinger method and obtained 56.086 kJ/mol, 6.95� 108 min-1, and 1.058, respectively. Based on fitting result between reaction model and experiment were obtained that reaction obeyed the three dimension diffusion model.© 2014 BCREC UNDIP. All rights reserved
