Intercalation of lithium into the vacant sites of a host compound can be achieved electrochemically using non-aqueous electrolytes. The use of aqueous electrolyte is less common because of the reactivity of many lithium intercalation compounds with water. Here we propose that lithium could be intercalated using aqueous solutions, lithium hydroxide as the electrolyte. The X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (SIMS) data on the discharged material indicate that lithium is intercalated into the host structure of EMD without the destruction of its core structure. A significant improvement on cell performance was obtained by adding small amounts (<3 wt%) of titanium disulphide (TiS2) to the cathode.
