What`s the Relationship Between Graphite and Carbon2014-03-07

As most of us know, there is something similar with graphite and carbon. In fact, they do have relationship with each other. You must have problems with the same and the difference between the graphite and the carbon. In fact, if you have the patience to make sure, I would rather to have a choice about talking about something about it, maybe just a couple of things. I'd guess you must be interested in it.
 
As a matter of fact, the graphite is a kind of allotropic substance of elemental carbon. The surroundingof each carbon atom is connected with the other three carbon atoms. The arrangementshape of the three carbon atoms is in the shape of multiple hexagon. In addition, the arrangement shape is in the style of honeycomb type. These carbon atoms combine with covalent bond , then they become the covalent molecule.
 
What's more, each carbon atom can release an electronic, so these electronics can come and go freely. That is to say that the graphite is a kind of conductive body. That is why not only the graphite can be used to make graphite electrode paste, but also the graphite can be used to make bipolar graphite plate. Generally speaking, both graphite electrode paste and bipolar graphite plate can be made of extruded graphite. Maybe you have used the graphite electrode paste or bipolar graphite plate. At least, you have heard of the graphite electrode paste or bipolar graphite plate. Of all the conductive bodies, the graphite is a kind of the most soft mineral. As for the application of the graphite, the graphite can be used to make the pencil core and lubricants.
 
In contrast, the carbon is a kind of non metallic elements, and it is located in the IVA family of the second cycle from the periodic table of the elements. The carbon is called carbonium in Latin, which means coal or charcoal.
 
In a nut shell, there are some other kinds of graphite ,such as amorphous graphite or natural flake graphite. We can not talk about them one by one. But at least, it is fortunate for you that you have known something different between the graphite and the carbon. When you write down something in your notebook with your pencil, you will not bother yourself about the material of the pencil core. You must make sure that the pencil core is made of graphite instead of carbon. In a word, graphite is very practical for us.
