High Electrical Conductivity Graphite Intercalation Compounds
Intercalation compounds of graphite of the acceptor type have been demonstrated to have electrical conductivities superior to those of the best known natural metals copper and silver. This accomplishment is of considerable scientific and technological interest because: 1) these materials are highly anisotropic and provide a highly two dimensional medium for solid state experimentation and 2) one can forsee the development of conductors of electricity that are more efficient than those currently in use. Further, there is a promise of creating a material which has an electrical conductivity still higher than those experienced to date — perhaps as high as ten times that of copper. This paper will suggest a path that leads in that direction.
