The results of the doping of molecular solid films of the medium-sized aromatic hydrocarbon hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronene (HBC), using lithium or sodium atoms were presented. The evolution of the valence band electronic structure was monitored by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and studied by ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy. Results indicated that n-doping depended on the type of alkali-metal atom employed and on the molecular order of the film. The smaller Li ion was found to have a stronger influence on the electronic structure than Na ions. These results revealed the potential use of the graphene materials in lithium-ion batteries with a high charge-storage capacity.
