Materials Science Forging one of the world's hardest materials (diamond) from the same atomic carbon building blocks as one of its softest (graphite) has intrigued many a high school chemistry student. This dexterity of carbon originates from its ability to exist in two distinct bonded states, sp3 and sp2. Materials in which these two states coexist are highly sought after by materials scientists. Hu et al. report that forging glassy carbon at moderate temperatures yields a series of sp3-sp2… CONTINUE READING
