"Diamond and Graphite."
A Chemistry Piece Contributed to
"The Book of Answers & Questions" by Ann Rae Jonas.

Published in the Boston Museum of Science Series, 1996, by Adams Media Corporation, Holbrook, Massachusetts.
The book offers fascinating answers and thought-provoking questions at the heart of today's science for a young and young-at-heart audience. John Shane, the Vice President for Programs at M-o-S, writes in the preface: "Our greatest hope is that this book will stipulate your curiosity. The essays should give you some sense of the enormous range of scientist's curiosity. They should also give you a better understanding of the process of science and the excitement available to us all if we learn to ask question."
