Measurements of the longitudinal magnetoresistance ρ{variant}zz(Hz) of graphite with primary electric current perpendicular to the basal planes (J̃ | c̃ | H̃) are reported in magnetic fields up to 8 tesla (80 kG). Several new features have been observed, including saturation effects at 77°K, the observation of quantum oscillations (Shubnikov-de Haas effect) up to the n = 1 Landau level, and further structure in the oscillations at T = 1.4°K. The results are compared to the transverse magnetoresistance ρ{variant}χχ(Hz) and discussed in relation to recently proposed models for c-axis conduction.
