Prof. Michael Learner (Oregon State University) will present "Graphite – A Review of Intercalation Chemistry and Some New Compounds Using Electride Solutions"
Abstract: Graphite is the first and perhaps the most well-studied intercalation host, and this chemistry is important for energy storage. But compared to other layered hosts, graphite chemistry and graphite intercalation compounds (GICs) show some unusual properties and have a more extensive range of guests. The application of these chemistries for anodes other than in Li ion cells, or for cathodes, appears promising but unsolved challenges remain. This talk will give an overview of the chemistry of graphite intercalation, describe our work preparing new acceptor-type graphite fluoroalkylanion GICs, and then go into more recent work on preparing GICs with group 1 and 2 metal cations from electride solutions.
Host: Prof. Nick Stadie
