Carbon is an element found in the Earth’s crust and at its surface. The role of carbon in life is crucial. Human production and existence are inseparable.
diamonds are forever
Diamond is nature’s hardest substance. It has a hardness of 4x that of corundum but 8x that of quartz.
How is diamond so hard?
There was already a written record of diamonds in literature as far back as the 1st Century AD. However, it was not until the second half of the 18th century that people discovered the actual composition of diamond. The “material” which made diamonds was only discovered by scientists in the second decade of the 18th Century.
Lavoisier (1743-1794), a French Chemist, conducted experiments in the 1970s to make carbon dioxide gas. This is an amalgamation of oxygen and carbon. substance. This is because diamond contains carbon. These tests proved that diamond’s material is actually carbon.
It is not possible to explain the high hardness of diamond despite knowing that diamonds are composed entirely of carbon. For example, graphite was used in the manufacture of pencil leads. Although the carbon content is similar to diamond, graphite has a softer texture than human nails.
How are graphite, diamond, and graphite different?
William Bragg, a British physicist (1862-1942), answered this question only in 1913. Bragg’s son and father used X-rays for diamonds observation and to examine the arrangement of atoms within diamond crystals. It was found that every carbon atom in the diamond crystal is closely combined with all the other 4 carbons atoms. This creates a dense, three-dimensional structure. This unique structure has never before been seen in any other minerals. This structure is also 1.5 times more dense than graphite, making diamonds 3.5g/cm. Diamonds are the most hardened because of their dense structure. Also, diamonds are formed from carbon atoms.
Synthetic Diamond
It is also the hardest material in nature. Diamond has many important industrial applications, such as high-hard cutting and fine abrasive tools, wire drawing dies, drill bits, etc. Also, it is used in many precision instruments.
Also, diamond has exceptional physical properties like super-hardness. It is also resistant to heat, wear, heat sensitivity and thermal conductivity. The “king of diamond hardness” is also the “kingof gems”. The angle of diamond crystals lies at 54° 44′ 8. The United States utilized graphite in 1950s to make synthetic diamonds. Synthetic diamonds are now widely used in life and production. Although it is difficult to make large quantities of diamonds (natural diamonds are so valuable), people can create diamond films.
Graphite Graphite , a dark grey opaque fine-scale solid with metallic luster is a gray opaque. It’s soft, greasy, and excellent in electrical conductivity. Graphite is made up of carbon atoms that are tightly bonded in a planar layer structure. Because the bonds between layers is fragile and easy to slip between, it can be used for many purposes, including making pencils, electrodes, tram cables, etc. Main functions: making pencils, electrodes, tram cables, etc.
Fullerene was the fourth carbon-carbon crystal discovered in 1985, after graphite, carbonite, and carbon linear. Fullerene has been recently discovered as an industrial material. It is more hard than diamond in terms of its hardness, but it is also stronger than steel.
It has a 100-fold stronger magnet, can conduct electricity and weighs only 1/6th of copper.
They are sometimes called carbon nanotubes, bucky tube or columnar molecules. It is aromatic, dissolves in benzene and is sauce red. This can be done by using an arc method or resistance heating graphite rod to evaporate graphite. C60 can become super-lubricant due to its lubricity. C60 is metal-doped and has high superconductivity. It’s a promising material for superconducting. C60 could also be used as a semiconductor, catalyst, and in medicine.
