Recently one of authors developed new process to synthesize different graphite intercalation compounds(GICs) of metal chlorides by using their molten salts[1,2]. Ternary GICs of NiCl2 and FeCl3 were obtained from the molten salts of NiCl2 and FeCl3 with different ratios at 400°C after 3 days without any intentional addition of chlorine gas. The compounds were found to be stable in air and even in boiling water.
