Charge transfer in the course of the electrochemical ion intercalation is typically understood as the transfer of an alkali metal ion across the intercalating material/electrolyte interface. The activation energy of this step determines the rate capability of intercalation-based energy storage devices, which calls for the investigation of the origin of the charge transfer limitations in various intercalation systems. The major focus of the experimental studies in this area is on the experimental determination of the charge transfer rates under different experimental conditions, while molecular modeling approaches allow to unveil the mechanistic aspects of the intercalation processes.
