Graphite is a good conductor of electricity while diamond and other carbon compounds do not conduct electricity. Explain

Diamond is a non-conductor of electricity since there are no free electrons in a diamond crystal.

Graphite on the other hand is a very good conductor of electricity due to the presence of free electrons.
