Afiqah Samsul Kamal, Rapidah Othman, Noor H Jabarullah.
Commercial graphite is valuable products that have extensively being utilize in wide range of applications. The increase in demand, especially in customizing properties for certain utilization have led to researches on possible alternative, low-cost, and environmentally friendly synthetic graphite production. Biomass waste are among attractive carbon precursor that have been widely investigate as raw material for graphite production. The synthesis and application of biomass as carbon precursor have drawn attention due to it availability, sustainability and cost effective. In this critical review, an extensive list of production of graphite from biomass waste is presented. The effects of various process parameter on properties of synthetic graphite are also discussed. This study reviews previous study on different feasible method in synthesizing graphitic carbon.
