The possibilities of using powder X-ray diffraction methods in the study of carbon materials are discussed. To determine the phase composition of the crystalline materials the X-ray phase analysis is employed; the real structure is established by the harmonic analysis of diffraction profiles; the structural features and phase composition of the nanomaterials are found by the radial electron density distribution function.
