The present work studied on phases and magnetic properties of graphite nanosheets and Ni-graphite nanocomposite synthesized using the electrical explosion of wire (EEW) in ethanol. X-ray diffraction and field emission scanning electron microscope were used to investigate the phases and the morphology of the nanopowders obtained. It was found that graphite nanosheets were absolutely fabricated by EEW with a thickness of 29 nm and 3 μm diameter. The as-synthesized Ni-graphite composite powders had a Ni-coating on the surfaces of graphite sheets. The hysteresis loop of the as-exploded, the hydrogen-treated composite nanopowders and the sintered samples were examined with a vibrating sample magnetometer at room temperature. The Ni-graphite composite exposed the magnetic behaviors which are attributed to Ni component. The magnetic properties of composite had the improvement from 10.2 emu/g for the as-exploded powders to 15.8 emu/g for heat-treated powders and 49.16 emu/g for sintered samples.
