This thesis concerns the discovery of superconductivity in the intercalated graphite compounds C6Yb and C6Ca. A novel technique for synthesis of these intercalates has been developed, and is presented in detail. These two materials are shown to superconduct at 6.5K and 11.5K respectively. The superconductivity is demonstrated by measurements of the magnetisation and resistivity. Initial measurements of the superconducting transition of these materials as a function of pressure shows an increase in the transition with increasing pressure.
