Low temperature reactions such as intercalation and desintercalation allow the rational design of structures by preserving the main framework of a given compound leading to the modification of coordination. This is in marked contrast with high temperature synthesis which limits the control of coordination.
High Pressure Synthesis
Kageyama Laboratory possesses a high pressure machine (cubic) (2012) . Going up to 8 GPa (80,000 atmospheres) allows to prepare materials that cannot be obtained at ambient pressure. We are now investigating the synthesis of novel materials.
