Infrared spectroscopy has been used to characterize the intercalation compound formed between Cd2P2S6 and cobaltocene. Because certain infrared active modes of cobaltocene are very sensitive to its oxidation state, these bands can be used to determine the relative concentration of neutral and oxidized cobaltocene residing within the Cd2P2S6 host lattice. In addition, the use of an infrared microscope has allowed for concentration versus distance profiles of the neutral and oxidized cobaltocene to be determined. It is observed that the neutral and the cationic cobaltocene have different spatial profiles after short reaction times before the host becomes fully intercalated.
