Abstract: Layered materials are a class of materials which possess strong in-plane covalent chemical bonding within each atomic layer and weak out-of-plane van der Waals (vdW) interactions between adjacent layers. The nature of vdW gap between neighboring layers allows the intercalation of various foreign species, specially alkali metal ions (e.g. Li+), into layered materials without breaking the in-plane covalent bonds. In this talk, I will present our recent progress made in the structural engineering of layered nanomaterials by lithium intercalation chemistry.
