Latest Fullerene Stories
The discovery of a soccer-ball-shaped molecule made of 60 carbon atoms was a minor revolution in chemistry: Fullerenes are spherical, highly symmetrical molecules made of carbon atoms, and are the third form of carbon after diamond and graphite.
This year's model isn't your father's nanocar. It runs cool.
After announcing last April a method for growing exceptionally long, straight, numerous and well-aligned carbon cylinders only a few atoms thick, a Duke University-led team of chemists has now modified that process to create exclusively semiconducting versions of these single-walled carbon nanotubes.
Researchers at Florida State University say a material commonly known as "buckypaper" could revolutionize the way everything from airplanes to TVs are made.
By Joann Loviglio PHILADELPHIA - For anyone whose last foray into chemistry was being forced to memorize the periodic table of elements in high school, there's new reason to take another look at a subject you might have vowed never to revisit after final exams.

By MEREDITH PRICE LEVITT Nanotechnology takes the concept of small to new heights. Derived from the Greek word nanos, which means dwarf, nanotechnology deals with structures that are approximately one- billionth of a meter in size.
Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ:LUNA) announces the award of a $1.6 million Research Project Grant (R01) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to investigate the use of fullerene-based nanomedicines as a pathway to treat allergies and other inflammatory diseases.
Those stain-resistant khakis you just picked up at the mall, the tennis ball that holds its bounce longer and sunscreen that's clear instead of white have something in common - nanotechnology.
Nanotubes are the poster children of the nanotechnology revolution. These tiny carbon tubes â€“ less than 1/50,000 the diameter of a human hair â€“ possess novel properties that have researchers excitedly exploring dozens of potential applications ranging from transistors to space elevators.
Synthetic Metals is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Elsevier. It covers all aspects of electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials. It is an international medium for the rapid publication of original research papers, short communications and subject reviews dealing with research on and applications of electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials including novel carbon architectures. Original manuscripts on chemical, electrochemical, electrical, photonic...
