Superconductivity persists in several, layered, transition metal dichalcogenide superconductors when the layers are spread apart to accommodate organic molecules between them. These materials are of interest not only because of their two-dimensional character but also because they may provide a means for examining hypotheses regarding organic molecules and superconductivity.
