The intercalation of graphite with various alkali metal and rare-earth oxides has been well characterized [1]. However, the synthesis of organic intercalates of graphite has, up to now, been limited to solvent inclusion of small-ring systems. Reported here are the first intercalates of graphite with large aromatic ring systems that are used to form organic metals.
