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 is very interesting in the RS analysis section, the line contacting zero at 3550, the Aldrich section above shows the sp3 defect which is illustarted by the back circle.

Conclusions

What conclusions can be formed, the below table allows for clear stat comparison

RS 99%+ Carbon vs Sigma Aldrich 99.99% Carbon Raman Analysis results table

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.
