TWO-DIMENSIONAL METAL-AMMONIA-SOLUTIONS IN GRAPHITES.A. SOLIN
Physical Sciences Research Division, NEC Research Institute, Princeton, NJ 08540, U.S.A.
The preparation structural properties and electrical properties of metal-ammonia-solutions intercalated into graphite are briefly reviewed. It will be shown that the metal-ammonia-solutions in graphite are both the two-dimensional structural and electrical analogues of the more familiar bulk three-dimensional metal-ammonia solutions. These conclusions are supported by the results and interpretations of a number of physical measurements including elastic X-ray and neutron scattering, anisotropic transport studies and optical reflectivity studies.
