Intercalated Graphite Fibers

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 148)


The novel geometry of graphite fibers facilitates the study of various intercalation phenomena and is of particular importance for practical applications of GICs. Also in their pristine form, graphite fibers offer unique advantages over other forms of graphite for the study of novel phenomena and for a variety of practical applications. The synthesis, structure and properties of intercalated graphite fibers have much in common with intercalated bulk graphite host materials, such as kish graphite and highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG),1 which are extensively discussed in this volume. We therefore briefly review here the structure and properties of intercalated graphite fibers and the differences between GICs prepared from fiber and bulk graphite host materials.
