Oriented poly-p-phenylene sulphide (PPS) films (thickness 12 and 75 μm) and PPS powder were carbonized/graphitized after stabilizing by oxidation, in order to examine the effect of sulphur on graphitizability of the resulting carbons. The films and the powder resulted in carbons with a high and a low graphitizability respectively. An “in-plane oriented structure” of the PPS film was the most predominant factor to lead to a high graphitizability, and sulphur in the precursor did not lower the graphitizability when it was subjected to solid-phase carbonization. These phenomena are discussed on the basis of analytical data.
