Black to the future: The bulk intercalation of black phosphorus with alkali metals (namely: K and Na; black spheres) has been developed, showing a complex dynamic structural behavior. By in situ Raman spectroscopy and DFT calculations straightforward fingerprints for the identification of black phosphorus intercalation compounds (BPICs) have been demonstrated.
