pyrolytic graphite
A @[email protected] with a high degree of preferred crystallographic orientation of the c-axes perpendicular to the surface of the substrate, obtained by @[email protected] of @[email protected] or by chemical vapour deposition at temperatures above \(2500\ \text{K}\).
'Pyrographite', a synonym for pyrolytic @[email protected], was introduced as a trademark and should not be used as a term. Hot working of pyrolytic @[email protected] (by heat treatment under compressive stress at temperatures above \(3000\ \text{K}\)) results in @[email protected] (HOPG).
