Coal-like material transformed to amorphous graphite and nanotubes in simulations

In a warming world, coal can often seem the “bad guy.” But we can do other things with coal besides burn it. A team at Ohio University used the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center’s Bridges-2 system to carry out a series of simulations showing how coal might eventually be converted to valuable—and carbon-neutral—materials like graphite and carbon nanotubes.
