Intercalation of lithium and ammonia into the layered semiconductor Bi2Se3 proceeds via a
hyperextended (by > 60 %) ammonia-rich intercalate, to eventually produce a layered compound
with lithium amide intercalated between the bismuth selenide layers which offer scope for further
chemical manipulation.
