Molybdenum oxide thin films are deposited by thermal evaporation and sputtering, and lithium is inserted by a dry lithiation method. The FT-IR/ATR technique is used to study the formation and evolution of lithium bronze and lithium molybdate species. The mechanism of lithium intercalation
is found to be dependent on the method of film preparation. The involvement of water molecules in the kinetics of lithiation is stressed.
