In advance, two kinds of nano-structural graphite were prepared from graphite powder by ball-milling under hydrogen or argon atmosphere, where each product is denoted as HG or AG, respectively. And then, non-treated graphite powder (G), HG or AG was milled with Li to synthesize lithium-graphite intercalation compounds, which are denoted as Li-G, Li-HG and Li-AG, respectively. As shown in Fig. 1, the peaks corresponding to LiC6 and LiC12 were observed in XRD measurements for Li-G and Li- HG, while no peaks were observed in the case of Li-AG. However, similar thermal decomposition reactions were revealed for all the compounds under an inert gas, indicating that Li-AG includes the lithium intercalated graphite species. Figure 1. XRD profiles of starting materials and lithium intercalation compounds After hydrogenating treatments, the formation of LiH was confirmed by XRD measurements for all the compounds, suggesting that the intercalated lithium reacts with hydrogen. These hydrogenated compounds desorbed hydrogen with heating up to 500 °C. Furthermore, lithium carbide (LiC) was formed as dehydrogenated phase of all the compounds. References  T. Fukunaga, K.
