Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Commercial uses of fullerenes Although fullerenes are not yet used commercially, applications are being researched, such as catalytic methane activation to higher hydrocarbons funded by the US Dept of Energy. Other properties of fullerenes and their compounds such as superconductivity have yet to be exploited.
Thanks for the feedback!

Why does buckminster fullerene conduct electricity?

  Because, like graphite, it has got delocalized electrons. These electrons, when the C60 is exposed to a potential difference, are free to move towards the positive pole

What is a fullerene?

  A fullerene is a form of Carbon molecule that is neither diamond nor graphite. Fullerene molecules consist of 60 or more Carbon atoms, the smallest fullerene has no less

How was buckminster fullerene discovered?

  The discovery   The serendipitous discovery took place during experiments involving a cluster beam which uses a laser to vaporise a graphite rod in a helium atmosph

How are fullerenes prepared?

Fullerenes are prepared by vaporizing graphite rod in helium atmosphere. A mixture of fullerenes like C 60 , C 70 etc are formed which are separated by solvent extraction met

What is a endohedral fullerene?

  Endohedral fullerene - Introducing and trapping of atoms inside the spherical carbon cage.     Addition reactions     This simple topology consideration

How is fullerene prepared?

Fullerene is formed from graphene through severing of certain molecular bonds. When asymmetrical fullerenes settle, they form stable fullerenes, which can eventually become an

Compare the physical properties of diamond and graphite to those of buckminster fullerene?

diamonds form a 3 dimensional lattice. they also have have four bonds per atom. This makes a very strong material. graphite forms a 2 dimensional lattice. it has 3 bonds per

How many possible 3 number combination by using numbers 1 through 30?

Easier to find the ones that aren't possible, then subtract that from 900 total 3-digit numbers. Assuming we can use the same number more than once (e.g. 555) Not possible
