Artificial Graphite

Artificial graphite - the essence of purity

One of the reasons why artificial graphite may be preferred to recycled graphite is that it is capable of reaching close to 100% purity. This is crucial for its most popular application, that of anodes used in the lithium ion and lithium polymer batteries, which power many of the portable electronics devices on which the modern world has come to rely, such as laptops, smartphones and tablets. Recycled graphite can reach a very high standard of purity but at the current time it falls behind the best of the synthetics. Of course, the demand for graphite means that there is constant research being undertaken to improve the recycling process.
