Table of Contents

Graphite is the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions and is used in thermochemistry as the standard state for defining the heat of formation of carbon compounds. In this book, the authors discuss the advances in gasification of nuclear graphite; properties, occurrences and uses of graphite. Topics include the structural mimicry of carbon driven by ultrashort laser pulses; nanoscale sp2->sp3 conversion by visible light irradiation in graphite; graphite powder and related material as the principal component of carbon plastic electrodes; microstructural factors that govern the oxidative properties of graphite; application of graphite nano-particles in ultrafast fiber lasers; cluster deposition and implantation on/in graphite; thermal stability of fully lithiated graphite; and ethylene-octene copolymer/graphite composites.
