On the lithium uptake by the n-butyl-lithium intercalation method
The direct reaction with n-butyl lithium has been proved as an effective and easy to use way of Li intercalation to a variety of layered host structures (1). This method has been succesfully applied to most of the members of the transition metal dichalcogenides (TX2), as well as to the MPX3 (2) and III–VI family compounds (3,4). However this potential method has a major disadvantage. The total amount of the inserted Li is not directly controlled.
