    I thought I got the idea of Graphite structure, but when I'm reading it again now I don't understand why the electron from each C can freely move(vertically?) between the two layers, forming the linked sheets of graphenes? And why is there the Van der waals bonding (vertically?)between the layers? Is it caused by the freely-moving electron?

    Thank you so much
