The Characteristics of Flexible Graphite Sheet2018-06-13
The chemical properties of elemental carbon at room temperature are relatively stable, insoluble in water, dilute acids, dilute alkalis, and organic solvents; it reacts with oxygen at different high temperatures and burns to produce carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide; in halogens only fluorine can directly react with elemental carbon; Under the high temperature, carbon can react with many metals to form metal carbides. Carbon is reductive, and metals can be smelted at high temperatures.
Flexible Graphite Sheet is a carbonaceous elemental crystalline mineral whose crystal lattice is a hexagonal layered structure. The distance between each mesh layer is 340pm, and the spacing of carbon atoms in the same mesh layer is 142pm. It is a hexagonal crystal system with complete layered cleavage. The cleavage surface is mainly composed of molecular bonds, and its molecular attraction is weak, so its natural buoyancy is very good.
The Flexible Graphite Sheet and diamond, carbon 60, carbon nanotubes, etc. are all single elements of carbon, and they are allotropes.
