This chapter provides a summary of our studies on “Using XRD technique for model composite and related materials” aiming at applications for automotive materials in the future. The first topic is conventional XRD for composite materials. The second topic is Li-ion battery and model composites. The third topic is TiO2 photocatalysts and model composites. For example, we have systematically investigated thermally accessible structural changes of (chiral) Cu (II) complexes by means of XRD or spectroscopic methods. We also observed solid-state CD spectra for some bimetallic assemblies involving chiral Cu(II) complexes exhibiting thermally accessible structural changes associated with Jahn-Teller distortion. In addition, we have developed “separated” structural analysis of each component from powder XRD (PXRD) patterns for composite materials of metal oxides (LiMnO2 or TiO2) and (chiral) metal complexes of various ratios, which indicated IR spectral shifts by the ratios. Recently, we could observe anisotropic thermal distortion of composite materials of LiMnO2 and chiral Cu(II) complexes showing different structural changes as sole materials confirmed by separated PXRD analysis for the first time. The optical property of TiO2 composite may potentially apply for metal complex dyes and semiconductor-metal oxides of dye-sensitized solar cells.
