Kinetics and Diffusion in Graphite Intercalation Compounds
Serious and systematic studies of the kinetics of intercalation of graphite intercalation compounds (GIC’s) were first carried out by Hooley [1,2] who investigated the bromination of various forms of graphite in the early 1960’s. He found that the rate of intercalation was dependant on not only the intercalating species, but also on the microstructural morphology and macroscopic form of the graphitic host material. In addition, Hooley related the intercalation rate to the partial pressure of the vapor of the intercalating species and found a threshold pressure below which no intercalation occurred [1,2]. He also discovered that for pressures above the threshold pressure, there existed a dwell time which retarded the onset of intercalation.
