Different families of unconventional superconductors present a low charge carrier density as a common trait, suggesting that the low charge density can be at the basis of a unifying picture for different superconductors. In the past years we have suggested that the electron–phonon interaction can be responsible for a high-Tc superconducting pairing in a nonadiabatic regime, where nonadiabatic effects are triggered on by the small electronic Fermi energy associated with the low charge density character. A coherent picture of such a framework requires however reconciling the low charge density and the small Fermi energy with a finite metallic character (sizable density of states and large Fermi surfaces). In this paper we investigate the peculiar conditions which are needed to be encountered in order to fulfill these requirements. We discuss the specific case of fullerenes, cuprates and MgB2 alloys by analyzing their specific structural and electronic properties The comparison between these materials and simple instructive models permits to underline the different routes to reconcile these characteristics in different compounds. In cuprates and fullerenes the interplay between small Fermi energies and large Fermi surface is strictly connected with strong electronic correlation effects. A comprehensive understanding of these issues can be useful to the future search for new nonadiabatic high-Tc materials. (© 2005 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
