The poly-peri-naphthalene (PPN) whisker is a typical graphitizing carbonaceous material. Graphitized PPN consists of linear graphite chains oriented perpendicular to the direction of the whisker axis and folded at the whisker edges. The formation of such a unique whisker structure can be explained from the original structure of the PPN whisker.
