A monoclinic periodic mesoporous Lix(Mn1/3Ni1/3Co1/3)O2 spinel has been successfully prepared for the first time using a ‘two solvents’ pore infiltration methodology on hard silica templates. More commonly used synthetic techniques are not applicable to this complex material. This important battery cathode has a surface area of over 180 m2g−1 and a pore size of 5.5 nm.
