A discussion on the characterization of ZYX exfoliated graphite for studies of monolayer 3He below 1 mK was presented. It was reported that ZYX had a much larger crystalline size (100-200 nm) than that of Grafoil which was commonly used at ultralow temperatures (ULT). The results showed that to be used in heat capacity or nuclear magnetic resonance experiments on 2D 3He samples ZYX had a large surface area and good thermal conductance to cool them below 1 mK.
