"Electrides are not composed of cations and anions like a typical ionic compound. Rather, they are composed of cations and anionic electrons that are not associated to a nucleus."

Explain the process of liquid exfoliation
“This device is called a bath sonicator. It separates 3D materials into individual monolayers through a process called liquid exfoliation. "
Gen Chem Problem:
Voice over:Binding energy is used to predict the exfoliation of 2D materials. With your new knowledge of the structure of the Ca2N electride, predict whether Ca2N or graphite will have a higher binding energy.
Will Ca2N or graphite have higher binding energy and why?
Present Gen. Chem. Problem and Solution
