Graphite intercalation compounds (GICs)1 provide a unique system of compounds which are of interest for fundamental studies of low dimensional magnetism. Both donor (e.g., stage 1 C6Eu) and acceptor (e.g., all stages of certain transition metal chlorides) GICs have been found to exhibit low temperature magnetic phases. The possibility of preparing single isolated magnetic layers either by intercalation or by atomic deposition processes has stimulated a great deal of experimental activity in the observation of highly anisotropic and 2-dimensional (2D) magnetic phenomena. We start our discussion with a brief review of our current state of knowledge about quasi-2D magnetism resulting from studies of magnetic GICs. Complementary information is provided by samples prepared by atomic deposition processes2 or by intercalated transition metal dichalcogenides.3
