A carbon material consisting of separated monolithic particles.
Distinctions should be made between coarse particulate carbon or @G02682@ (larger than about 100 µm, but smaller than about 1 cm in average size), fine particulate carbon or powder or flour (between 1 and 100 µm in average size) and @C01173@ (below approximately 1 µm in size in at least one direction), e.g. @C00824@ and @C01173@.
