  • good electrical conductor, lubricant

Graphite in 2D sheet

  • Diamond-hardest material, electrical insulator, thermal conductor


Carbon nanotube
  • Good conductivity, high tensile strength
  • Similarity: contain only one kind of atom -carbon.
  • Difference: how those atoms are arranged.
  • Crystal structure –related to intrinsic electrical properties of material.
