Abstract

THE recent communication in Nature1 by J. Gibson directing attention to new extra lines in the X-ray powder diffraction pattern of graphite led us to re-examine a number of photographs of purified natural and artificial graphites taken some time ago. There appeared to be no extra lines in the positions observed by Gibson, although there were some exceedingly faint ones in other positions.
