Ternary graphite intercalation compounds (T GIC’s) are materials which contain two distinct intercalant species in the host galleries. The two species may be donor ions such as potassium and rubidium [1], acceptor molecules such as ferric chloride and aluminum chloride [2], or combinations of donor and acceptor species [3]. They may also be microscopically distinct chemical and/or structural phases of the same species [4]. Although T GIC’s were first synthesized several decades ago [5], interest in them on the part of physicists, chemists, and physical chemists has only recently been aroused. This awakening is a result of the general realization that T GIC’s offer exciting new opportunities for the exploration of physical phenomena in lower dimensions and for practical applications as well.
