Carbon material and producing same


A properly pre-baked filler is sealed in a graphite vessel and is subsequently subjected to hot isostatic pressing (hip) treatment, thereby allowing gases such as hydrocarbon and hydrogen to be generated from the filler and precipitating vapor-phase-grown graphite around and inside the filler using the generated gases as a source material, and thereby, an integrated structure of carbide of the filler and the vapor-phase-grown graphite is produced. In addition, nanocarbon materials are produced selectively and efficiently by adding a catalyst or adjusting the hip treating temperature..
