Reversible Topotactic Redox Reactions of Layered Chalcogenides

  • R. Schöllhorn


A systematic investigation has been undertaken by us on room temperature reactions which proceed by simultaneous uptake and loss of electrons and ions by electronically conducting solids able to act as a host matrix. The term “reversible topotactic redox reactions” which has been proposed by us earlier, seems to be an appropriate general description for this type of solid state process which receives increasing attention especially in connection with the search for improved electrode materials of primary and secondary batteries (1–5).
