What a miracle material carbon? Carbon tends to get a bad rap these days, but I think it is amazing. It plays a huge role in the world we live in, from the carbon dioxide in the air to the graphite in your pencil, to diamond in jewelry, to your body, you will find its figure print everywhere, just try to open your eyes. In the earth's crust, it is the 15th most abundant element and fourth most abundant universal element by mass after oxygen, hydrogen and helium. Can you believe that there is another carbon material that is stronger than steel, unbreakably elastic, resistant to chemicals and high temperature, a better conductor of electricity than silver, and a better heat conductor than diamond? So, nanotechnologists have been fascinated with potential of this material in all fields starting from aerospace to medical. Currently these carbon powders are incorporated in diverse commercial products ranging from rechargeable batteries, automotive parts, and sporting goods to boat hulls and water filters including supercapacitors, actuators, and lightweight electromagnetic shields. Hope to see much more applications in the next decade. Enjoy a huge range of interesting facts of amazing material carbon.
