About Carbon Black:
Carbon black is a finely divided form of amorphous carbon usually obtained via the partial combustion of hydrocarbons. The carbon black particles are usually spherical and have a high surface area to volume ratio albeit lower than activated carbon. Carbon black varies widely in particle size depending on the process by which they are made. It is often used as a pigment and reinforcing agent primarily in the automotive and rubber industries.
