Abstract

With the view to obtain quantitative estimates of the graphitizabilities of a graphitizable carbon and its mesophase, X-ray diffraction studies on identically heat-treated coal tar (CT) and its mesophase (MP) pitches have been carried out. Samples of MP and CT pitches were heat treated at 1050, 3400 and 2700 degree C using a graphite furnace and nitrogen atmosphere. Values of the graphitization index provide support for the conclusion that the graphitizability of MP specimens is superior to that of the corresponding CT specimens.
