Item description for Graphite and Precursors (World of Carbon) by Pierre Delhaes...

Humans first used carbon as chars from firewood in ritual paintings and primitive metallurgical processes. Natural forms of carbon have been known since antiquity, yet the knowledge of the carbon element in chemistry and its technical applications on a larger scale are a relatively recent development. The industrial revolution in Europe two centuries ago led the way to the numerous applications of these graphitic forms that are still used today. Graphite and Precursors features short tutorial articles on different topics related to the science and technology of carbons intended for engineers, students of Materials Science and scientists who are seeking a fundamental understanding without "reinventing the wheel." This first volume of the World of Carbon book series focuses on graphite and its precursors, including its origin and various implications. The basic properties of hexagonal graphite are developed, and several theoretical and experimental approaches explain why this crystalline solid is fascinating insolid state physics. Also featured are the numerous applications connected to thermal, mechanical and chemical graphites, as well as their various industrial uses in polycrystalline form. Finally, carbon precursors are introduced.

Reviews - What do customers think about Graphite and Precursors (World of Carbon)?

No buckyballs?!   Oct 3, 2004
Dusty old carbon. How interesting could this be? Well, right under our noses, there is a surprising amount of structure in carbon's graphite form. This book goes into some detail about the different possible forms of carbon, and the band structure.

Various chapters study mechanical and surface properties. Plus, you can learn about the amorphous and non-crystalline properties.

What is not covered here are Buckyballs. C60. Discovered in soot several years ago. Some of you are possibly interested in that, more than graphite. You might have to turn to later books in this series.
