We have synthesized and studied the binary intermetallic compounds, AGa2 and A[GaxSi2-x] (A = Sr, Ba, Ca), which are isostructural to the newly discovered 40 K superconductor MgB2. The binary compounds AGa2 were found to be non-superconducting above 2 K, even though they have the same valence electron number per formula as MgB2 and greater lattice parameters than MgB2. However, by varying the valence electron number, they become superconducting. This result suggests that the electronic structures of this class of compounds depend on more than just the valence electron density and the lattice parameters. The theoretical prediction that the Tc of MgB2 could be enhanced with the proper dopant to increase its carrier density or to expand the lattice could not be verified.
