9780080421520: The Fullerenes

Until recently, the element carbon was believed to exhibit only two main allotropic forms, diamond and graphite. Research in the US and Europe has now confirmed the existence of a third previously unknown form - buckminsterfullerene (C 60) and its relatives, the fullerenes (C 24, C 28, C 32,C 70 etc). The story of fullerene chemistry, physics and materials science began in 1985, almost twenty years after the existence of a spherical carbon cluster was first considered. In September 1985 a joint Sussex /Rice Universities team including Kroto, Heath, O'Brien, Curl and Smalley used a powerful mass spectrometric technique to identify the C+ 60 species, and proposed a spherical structure and the name buckminsterfullerene. It was not, however, until Kratschmer and Huffman reported the isolation of crystals of C 60, in 1990 that the closed cage structure of C 60 could be confirmed. The Fullerenes documents the work leading up to 1990 and more recent developments in the field of fullerene research and will serve as a reference tool for all workers in this area.

Book Description:

Fullerenes: Principles and Applications discusses all aspects of this exciting field.  Sections include: the basic principles for the chemical reactivity of fullerenes, electrochemistry, light induced processes, fullerenes for material sciences, fullerenes and solar cells, biological applications and multifunctional carbon nanotube materials.   Written by leading experts in the field the book summarises the basic principles of fullerene chemistry but also highlights some of the most remarkable advances that have occurred in recent years. This book will appeal to researchers in both academia and industry.

From the Back Cover:

The discovery of caged carbon structures, in 1985, established a whole new field of carbon chemistry.  Unlike graphite and diamond, these structures known as fullerenes are finite in structure and are relevant to a wide variety of fields including supramolecular assemblies, nanostructures, optoelectronic devices and a whole range of biological activities.
