Explain the reason and consequences behind the conversion of graphite to diamond being commercially not exploited

Dec 16th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! I'll try my best to answer

the first reason is that it requires very high temperatures and very very high pressures close to 10  giga pascals

which is not at all economical to do.

second reason is that the surface energy of diamond is too high and the conversion of layered structure of graphite to tetrahedral of diamond is difficult.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
