Abstract: We report the extraordinarily large positive magnetoresistances (MR, 69400% at 4.5K under a magnetic field of 8.15 T), de Hass-van Alphen oscillations effect at 10K and the semimetal-insulator-like transition in a wide range of temperature in highly oriented pyrolitic graphite (HOPG). Besides a dominating ordinary MR (OMR) mechanism in the free-electron mode, it is realized from qualitative analysis that the Coulomb interacting quasi-particles within graphite layers play some roles. However it is difficult to associate the transition with the simple OMR theory. In order to investigate the possible orgins of the transition, further analysis is carried out. It is revealed that the magnetic-field-induced behaviour is responsible for the semimental-insulator-like transitions in HOPG.
