Abstract

Graphite exhibits a lamellar structure (Fig.1). The lattice consists of oexagonal carbon monolayers separated by an interplanar spacing (d=3.35Å) much larger than the in-plane nearest neighbour distance (b=1.42Å). The weak interlayor interactions allow the intercalation of a wide diversity of atomic and molecular species between the carbon layers. Graphite Intercalation Compounds (GIC) are characterized by the existence of stage ordering: a periodic sequence of n graphite layers and an intercalated layer, with n defining the stage of the compound [1–11].
