Discovery Could Have A Bearing On Medical Imaging, Cancer Treatment
2013-09-16 08:14:11

Virginia Tech 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. Technically known as fullerenes, these spherical carbon molecules have shown great promise for uses in medicine, solar energy, and optoelectronics. But finding...

New Form Of Carbon: Grossly Warped 'Nanographene'

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

Columbia University Nanoscale technology used to drive a 'big' C60 through a 'small' H2O may help drug delivery 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. They expect this method will lead to an array of new...

New Carbon Form Can Indent Diamond
2012-08-17 09:33:27

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new form of very hard carbon clusters capable of indenting diamond has been observed by a team of Carnegie Institution for Science researchers. The carbon clusters are unusual in their mix of crystalline and disordered structures and have potential applications for a range of mechanical, electronic, and electrochemical uses. The team, led by Lin Wang, published their findings in the August 17, 2012, issue of Science. Carbon...

Toymaker Sued For Product Safety Violations
2012-07-26 09:36:12

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An independent government agency has ordered the halt of sales of the popular magnetic desktop toy Buckyballs, and has filed a lawsuit against the toy´s maker, claiming the small, magnetic balls are a serious hazard to small children. Buckyballs are high-powered desktop magnetic balls marketed for adults, but they are small enough that they can be swallowed, potentially causing serious harm to small children. Even teenagers...
