Recent measurements of the pressure dependence of the superconducting transition temperatures of KHgC4, KHgC8, KC8 and KC24 graphite intercalation compounds are summarized and discussed. The role of high pressure as a useful tool in exploring the phase stability, superconductivity, and other physical properties of these materials is emphasized, and possible directions for further research on these compounds are indicated.
