We have synthesized K-CFICs by the modified two-bulb method. These synthesized compound were analysed with X-ray diffractometer and UV/VIS spectrophotometer. According to X-ray diffraction analysis, the intercalation of potassium between the carbon layers of carbon fiber was better then other intercalants. From obtained data for this deintercalation process, we can see that a number of potassiums were presented as a residue between the carbon layers and this residue compounds had a stability for a long term. Therefore, it is appear that these compounds have a capability as new useful material. From UV/VIS spectrometry data, we can suppose that spectrum of K-CFICs synthesized at $250^{\circ}C$ had only a $R_{min}$, and spectra of any other compounds were not appeared charecteristic peaks because potassium ions were little affect the energy levels of original carbon fiber.
