Needle coke is formed from condensed aromatic compaunds by cross linking the aromatic rings of the high boiling arromatic compounds (typicaly 510 degC or higher). The resulting crystalline, silver gray colored coke is called needle coke because of its erratic, but clearly noticeable structure resembling broken needles.
