We report for the first time direct intercalation of C60 into graphite. In this new carbon solid, the two dimensional layers of C 60, stacked between every graphite layers (stage 1), showed long range ordering with average separation of 1.27 nm between C60 layers as evident from transmission electron microscopy. An up-shift of Graphite Raman E2g2 mode and down-shift of fullerenes Raman Ag2 pentagonal pinch mode was observed due to charge transfer from graphite to C60.
