Buckminsterfullerene has been one of the most astonishing gifts of modern science.

Two Exotic Forms Of Carbon Crafted Into A Molecule For Steering Electron Flow
2014-09-11 03:17:58

Scientists have married two unconventional forms of carbon – one shaped like a soccer ball, the other a tiny diamond – to make a molecule that conducts electricity in only one direction.

Scientists are using a pioneering method of 'caging' and cooling water molecules to study the change in orientation of the magnetic nuclei at the centre of each hydrogen atom - a process which transforms the molecule from one form of water to another.

Water Caged In Buckyballs Provides Insight Into Spin Isomers

In a new paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics, produced by AIP Publishing, a research team in the United Kingdom and the United States describes how water molecules "caged" in fullerene spheres ("buckyballs") are providing a deeper insight into spin isomers -- varieties of a molecule that differ in their nuclear spin.

Discovery Could Have A Bearing On Medical Imaging, Cancer Treatment

Researchers at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute have reported the first experimental evidence that supports the theory that a soccer ball-shaped nanoparticle commonly called a buckyball is the result of a breakdown of larger structures rather than being built atom-by-atom from the ground up.

Theoretical Possibility Of Large, Hollow Magnetic Cage Molecules Discovered By VCU Physicists

New molecules could be larger than the original Buckminster fullerene with potential applications in technology and health care

Buckyball Manipulated By Inserting A Single Water Molecule
2013-05-06 10:26:08

Columbia Engineering researchers have developed a technique to isolate a single water molecule inside a buckyball, or C60, and to drive motion of the so-called "big" nonpolar ball through the encapsulated "small" polar H2O molecule, a controlling transport mechanism in a nanochannel under an external electric field.
