Is Carbon a semiconductor?

Asked by  | 5th Mar, 2008, 08:57: AM

Expert Answer:

Carbon is one of the most abundant elements found on earth. It occurs freely in crystalline forms such as diamond and graphite. Because of their difference in structures, diamond is an electrical insulator, whereas graphite is a good electrical conductor. The high conductivity of graphite and its good chemical stability are attractive features for its use in electrochemistry.
