onvert coal into Nano graphite
International researchers have proven that it takes just 15 minutes for pulverized coke to be high-value.
. Scientists explain how microwave ovens are used to convert raw coal into Nano-graphite in a research article published in Nano-Structures & Nano-Objects. The lubricant Nano graphite is useful for can be used in everything, from fire extinguishers to batteries.
This “metal assisted microwave processing one step method” represents, according to them, a relatively simple yet cost-effective new way of coal conversion in Wyoming. TeYu, a team from the University of Wyoming said that while previous research has shown microwaves can lower the moisture content of coal as well as remove minerals like sulfur, other methods of coal conversion require special chemical treatment. The only thing that was done in this experiment was to grind the Powder River Basin’s raw coal. Put the powder on copper foil, seal with mixed gas hydrogen-argon gas and place in a glass container.
Chris Masi is the principal author. Copper foil, hydrogen and oxygen are also used in polycrystalline graphite conversion. Researchers from China, Nepal, New York and China are part of the team. They believe that this method for coal conversion can be enhanced and applied on large scales to create graphite nanomaterials with higher quality.

This is the naturally occurring form crystalline carbon. It’s a natural element mineral that is often found in metamorphic rocks and igneous rock. Graphite, a rare mineral that can transcend all boundaries. It’s extremely soft and can cleaves at very low pressure. However, this material is very resistant to heat and virtually inert when placed in contact of any other material. This gives it many uses in metal metallurgy or manufacturing.
Graphite, a carbon-carbon mixture that is formed when carbon is heated and under pressure in Earth’s crust and the upper mantle, is a form of mineral. For graphite to be formed, it is necessary for temperatures between 750 and 75,000 pounds/square inch. These conditions correspond with the granulite-metamorphic facies.
A majority of today’s graphite was created at the convergent plate borders where organic rich shales and limestones were heated and subjected the pressure and heat of regional metamorphism. The result is marble, schist and gneiss with tiny crystals or flakes of graphite.
These rocks are mineable if graphite has a high enough concentration. They can be crushed until they have a size that allows for the release of graphite. Finally, they can be used to process the graphite by either specific gravity separation (or froth flotation) to extract the low-density. It is also known as “flakegraphite.”
Some graphite results from the metamorphism and formation of coal seams. Carbon, oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen and other elements make up the majority of organic coal. Heat from metamorphism causes the destruction of organic coal molecules and volatilizes oxygen, sulfur, nitrogen, and hydrogen. It is then that a very pure carbon substance remains, which eventually crystallizes as mineral graphite.
These graphite “seams” correspond to original layers of coal. Amorphous graphite is the name given to this material when mined. In this instance, the term “amorphous” may be misleading as it actually has a crystalline structure. The material looks similar to lumps made of coal, except that it lacks the dull and bright banding.
Diamond, Graphite, and Diamond
Carbon minerals include diamond and carbon-containing mineral forms. The mantle is where diamonds form under high temperatures and pressure. The crust was at lower temperatures, and under higher pressures than the graphite. Graphite, like diamond, has a similar composition. However they are very different in their structures.
One atom thick sheets are formed by graphite’s carbon atoms linked together in a hexagonal structure. The sheets have poor connections and can easily slide or cleave over each other when they are subjected only to small amounts of force. This allows graphite to have a very low hardness as well as its excellent cleavage and slippery feel.
The carbon atoms of diamonds, on the other hand, are interconnected into a frameworks structure. The three-dimensional network includes four covalently bound carbon atoms and each carbon atom. This structure holds diamond’s atoms securely in place making it an extremely hard material.
