Graphite is one of the very common allotropes of carbon. It is also the most stable allotrope of carbon and thus used in electrochemistry as the standard state for defining the heat of formation of carbon compounds. Graphite is a good conductor of heat and electricity with a density of – g/cm 3. Graphite was accidentally synthesized Estimated Reading Time: 6 mins.
Thermodynamically, graphite at atmospheric pressure is the more stable form of carbon. Diamond is trans-formed to graphite above °C (Figure ). The structure of graphite consists of a succession of layers parallel to the basal plane of hexagonally linked carbon atoms. The ideal graphite structure is shown in Figure
Graphite is also said to be one of the naturally-occurring form of crystalline carbon. However, this mineral is an interesting one and is commonly referred to as the mineral of all extremes. As such, Graphite is soft in nature, it cleaves easily even with light pressure, is greasy and features low specific ted Reading Time: 4 mins.
Previously, China was the main player in the world market for graphite electrodes. However, in , several large Chinese enterprises were closed for environmental reasons. The new plant will provide a relatively small increase in investment in the region. In addition, his tax revenues will be limited due to the preferential tax regime in the SEZ.
· Graphite electrodes are a key element in producing high-grade electrical steel. Building this cutting-edge facility is strategically important in ensuring the Russian metallurgy industry’s independence from foreign supplies — most of these products being .
