Spheroidal graphite is little-known form of graphite. It is known that its presence affects the properties of gray cast iron post, typical steels. Research evidence that the spheroidal graphite is a unique layered spiral system of micro-and nanostructures, the inhomogeneous phase composition, structure and elemental composition with predominantly periodic alternation of closely spaced layers. Such systems can have properties and their combinations significantly different than the individual micro-and nanoparticles and composites based on them. The high ratio of surface area to volume ratio in these particles, varied richness of relationships and the topology of the variable point to their promise to study their physical adsorption and catalytic properties and a number of devices based on them.
