Abstract

We discuss herein the emergence of a large entropy change in metallic Li0.33VS2 derived from orbitally assisted loose σ bond formation. Comprehensive structural studies based on synchrotron x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses clarify the fabrication of ribbon chains at 375 K, consisting of multiple three-centered two-electron σ bonds based on the viewpoint of local chemical bonding. Although the metallic conductivity persists down to the lowest temperature measured, an exceptionally large entropy change as a metal, as much as ΔS=6.6Jmol-1K-1, appears at the transition. The emergence of a large entropy change in a metallic state may possibly lead to different functional materials, such as a heat-storage material with a rapid thermal response.
