Glassy Carbon has a quite unique structure. This material contains random combination of basal plane and edge plane. The figure, at the right, shows the model illustration introduced by G. M. Jenkins and K. Kawamura. It becomes an outstanding material, which can be used for the electrode in an analytical chemistry domain as electrochemical measurements, detection of high-speed liquid chromatography, biosensor and others.

Glassy Carbon has quite unique structure. As the figure below shows, this material contains random combination of basal plane and edge plane.
