We have succeeded in preparing Li-intercalated Bi-based oxychlorides with the layered structures LixBiOCl and LixBiPbO2Cl (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) by means of the chemical technique using a solution of n-buthyllithium in hexane and the electrochemical one. In the case of the chemical technique for both BiOCl and BiPbO2Cl, the host samples have turned black gradually and the electrical resistivity has decreased with increasing treatment-time. However, the temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity has still remained semiconductive. From the powder X-ray diffraction and ICP analyses, the products have been found to be of the single phase within the Li-content of O ≤ x ≤ 1. The time required for the Li-intercalation by the electrochemical technique has been a fraction of that by the chemical technique.
