A theoretical model for the electronic structure of the graphite intercalation compounds based on the kz axis zone folding of the pristine graphite π-bands is applied to explain the experimental results obtained in magneto-reflection and in Shubnikov-deHaas experiments on donor compounds. The detailed fit to the observed Shubnikov-deHaas frequencies for stage 5 graphite-potassium supports the model and suggests that the dominant interactions that determine the Fermi surfaces are closely related to those involving the π-bands for pristine graphite.
