### Description

Lithium metal phosphate olivine (LiMPO${}_4$; M= Fe, Mn, Co, Ni) have a great deal of attention as one of the promising cathode material for lithium ion batteries. To date, a considerable number of studies have enhanced the electrochemical behavior of LiFePO${}_4$ from being barely electrochemically active to having a full capacity at high rates. Based on the success of LiFePO${}_4$, an increasing number of research groups have focused their attention on LiMnPO${}_4$, which exhibits an obvious advantage over LiFePO${}_4$ with a redox potential of 4.1 V VS Li/Li${}^+$. However, the LiMnPO${}_4$ kinetics is unusually sluggish due to its intrinsically low ionic and electronic conductivity. Many techniques, including to carbon coating, nano-sized using and aliovalent doping have been done to improve rate capability of this material. The doping of LiFePO${}_4$ with Cr${}^{3+}$ has been investigated in several previous studies which show an enhancement in conductivity and rate performance. However, the Cr-associated mechanism during charge/discharge is not yet revealed. Here, we report phase transition investigation of LiMn${}_{0.85}$Cr${}_{0.15}$PO${}_4$ cathode material by in-situ time-resolved XANES.
