Carbon as a carbon glassy modification.
Rod with a length of ~198mm and 6.6mm Diameter (the picture shows a 170mm rod)
Glassy carbon, also called vitreous carbon, is an advanced material of pure carbon combining glassy and ceramic properties with these of graphite. Unlike graphite, glassy carbon has a fullerene-related microstructure. This leads to a great variety of unique material properties.
- Extreme resistance to thermal shock and corrosion
- stable in inert gas or vacuum up to 3000°C
This modification of the element still is very expensive and hard to find. A must-have for every element collection!
