Abstract : Previous reported intercalation compounds of graphite and xenon fluorides and halogen fluorides were synthesized with HOPG as starting material. While the course of intercalation was followed by in situ measurements such as electrodeless conductivity, c-axis expansion and x-ray diffraction, one of the main objectives of the syntheses was to prepare suitable materials for conducting physical measurements such as those carried out by ongoing projects on those materials sponsored by the USAF. These included studies of thermal properties, vibrational spectroscopy and microstructure. Special attention was devoted to the syntheses of new binary and ternary intercalation compounds of graphite with inorganic fluorides in order to determine by chemical or physical means the chemical species existing in the intercalates.
