Many layered materials of interest for electrochemical energy storage and conversion applications are flexible hosts whose interlayers can be expanded to accommodate not just ions but also solvents, organic molecules, polymers, and organometallics. When these “hybrid” materials are placed into an electrochemical environment, the distinction between surface and bulk becomes blurred since the electrochemical interface can now be viewed to extend into the interlayer. During this seminar, I will discuss fundamental aspects of charge storage at electrochemical interfaces and how interfacial charge storage and reactivity change under confinement. I will also describe synthesis of hybrid layered materials and the use of in situ and operando characterization to understand the relationships between structure and composition and the resulting electrochemical reactivity.
