Structure and Symmetry of Graphite by Constantinos Zeinalipour-Yazdi by Constantinos D. Zeinalipour-Yazdi — last modified September 15, 2013 - 11:41
The crystallographic elucidation of the structure of graphite highlights various proposed structures and discusses the crystallographic techniques used to elucidate the atomic positions in the lattice. Graphite is widely used as an engineering material because its laminar crystalline structure results in many unique chemical, thermoelectric, and spectroscopic properties. The structural, spectroscopic, and electronic information used was acquired from mineralogy, X-ray diffractometry, electron and neutron diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, low-energy electron diffraction, scanning tunneling microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. Also considered are advances in bulk and surface structural analytical techniques, which have helped resolve many of the questions concerning the structure of graphite.
