RS Natural Crystalline Vein Graphite, 99%+C outperforms Chinese Flake & 99.99%C Sigma Aldrich Synthetic Graphite
First up, Chinese Flake Graphite
Chinese Flake stats; 95%C & 0.1173Ω/cm, now for RS Natural Crystalline Vein, 99%+C Graphite Powder
RS records 99.1%C & 0.0275Ω/cm
RS records a higher carbon content with 99.1%C & lower resistance of 0.0275Ω/cm compared to Chinese flake's 95%C & 0.1173Ω/cm.
We can conclude then that, RS crystalline vein graphite excels in natural carbon content & has far better conductivity levels.
Return to Natural vs Synthetic
In the previous RS Mines newsletter issue we looked at RS 99%+C crystalline vein graphite powder against 99.99%C synthetic. To finish this round of analyses we go back to the two rivals. In this case the choice of analysis being raman spectroscopy and the products;
RS Mines 99%+C, Natural Crystalline Vein Powder vs lab favorite Sigma Alrdich 99.99%C synthetic.
Note the sp3 defect band detected in 99.99% Aldrich (indicated by the black circle, shown below)
What conclusions can be formed, the below table allows for clear stat comparison
RS natural crystalline vein graphite 99%+C powder achieves higher peak values for G band and G1 band, more importantly the natural carbon particles contained within the RS natural 99%+C powder bonds to other elements far better due to no sp3 defect.
