Molecular Fullerides

Fullagar, Wilfred K

Description

The closed shell structures of certain all-carbon fragments originally observed in mass spectroscopy experiments leads to the enhanced stability of these species, known as fullerenes, which have excited sufficient interest amongst chemists and physicists over the last decade to warrant the award of the 1996 Nobel Prize for Chemistry to their discoverers. ¶ Studies of the stability, symmetry, and consequent remarkable properties of fullerenes began in earnest in 1991 with the development...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractThe closed shell structures of certain all-carbon fragments originally observed in mass spectroscopy experiments leads to the enhanced stability of these species, known as fullerenes, which have excited sufficient interest amongst chemists and physicists over the last decade to warrant the award of the 1996 Nobel Prize for Chemistry to their discoverers. ¶ Studies of the stability, symmetry, and consequent remarkable properties of fullerenes began in earnest in 1991 with the development of a technique enabling the production and purification of macroscopic quantities of material. The best known and most widely studied fullerene is the truncated icosahedral C60 molecule, which forms the basis of the present work.
