Diamond and other high-pressure phases of carbon were synthesized in air by exposing fine particles of carbon black to carbon dioxide and Nd-YAG laser radiation. The high-pressure phases were separated from the carbon black by selective oxidation and were characterized by electron and x-ray diffraction. Formation of cubic diamond, chaoite and graphite was confirmed.
