Volume 10, Number 6 (December) • GRAPHITIC CARBON
This issue of Elements will present recent advances in our understanding of the formation of graphitic carbon (graphitization, fluid deposition) and will discuss its role as actor and/or tracer in cosmochemistry, geobiology, geochemistry, and petrology. In particular, graphitic carbon may carry an important biological legacy in rocks, it may be used for assessing the thermal history of rocks, and it buffers the chemical composition of fluids in equilibrium with rocks. The issue will also present an introduction to the new carbon nanomaterials (e.g. graphene, carbon nanotubes), which bear structural similarities with natural graphitic carbon, and to their technological applications.
