Graphite

which originate from the strong covalent bonding between its atoms. In particular, diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any bulk material. ELECTRICAL CONDUCTANCE: - . Diamond is less stable than graphite, but the conversion rate from diamond to graphite is negligible at ambient conditions. Other specialized applications also exist or are being developed, including use as semiconductors: some blue diamonds are natural semiconductors, in contrast to most diamonds, which are...

Allotropes of Carbon: Diamond and Graphite

Transport Phenomenon (Electrical and Thermal) in two allotropic forms of Carbon (Diamond and Graphite) Graphite and Diamond both are formed from carbon (two allotropic forms of carbon). Though they have similar constituent element, they differ a lot in their properties. Diamond is a good thermal conductor but a bad electrical conductor, while graphite is a bad thermal conductor but a good electrical conductor. This is one example of their property difference. The difference in their properties...

Account for the Different Physical Properties and Uses of Diamond, Graphite and the Fullerene You Have Chosen, in Terms of Bonding.

and therefore determine how diamond is used by humans in the 21st century. Although diamond and graphite are composed of the single element carbon, diamond is the hardest natural substance on earth while graphite is soft with a slippery feel. By simply rearranging the way the atoms are bonded together in diamond, we can obtain the structure of graphite and its physical properties. Graphite structure is basically a layered 2D covalent network in which every Carbon atom is bonded to three other...

graphene and graphene based composites and to investigation of their possible applications [1-5]. Graphite sheets as a filler material can lead to significant change in properties of composites. Carbon-based materials and graphite nanoparticles in particular in general enhance electronic, optical, thermal and mechanical properties of polymer matrixes [6-11]. To synthesize electroconductive composites graphite nanoparticles were used as filler material in many insulating polymers, for example epoxy, polystyrene...

Allotropes of Carbon

Allotropes are the existence of an element in more than one form. Carbon is one of the elements that contain many allotropes. Each allotrope of carbon has its own different properties. The allotropes of carbon are diamond, graphite, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, carbon nanobuds, amorphous carbon, glassy carbon, lonsdaleite, and carbon nanofoam. Diamond is the best know allotrope of carbon. It is the hardest known natural mineral which makes it very rough. In the structure of the diamond, each carbon...

The Pencil

deposit of graphite was discovered near Grey Knotts in England during the first half of the 1500’s. Local residents cut the graphite into sticks and used them to mark their sheep. The graphite was misidentified as lead, a word that has been connected with pencils ever since, even though modern ones don’t contain any lead. Graphite had great military value as a liner of moulds for cannonballs, so the mine was quickly taken over by the English government. Workers had to smuggle graphite out of the...
