  • Research team synthesizes monometallic endohedral azafullerene

    Recently, a research team led by Prof. YANG Shangfeng from the University of Sciences and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) synthesized La@C81N, a type of monometallic endohedral azafullerene (MEAF) for the first time, providing a new way to modulate the electronic more

  • Semiconductor technology mitigates fire risk in electric vehicle batteries

    Despite rapid development of electric vehicles (EVs), the safety of the lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries remains a concern as they are as a fire and explosion risk. Among the various approaches to tackle this issue, Korean researchers have used semiconductor technology to improve the safety of Li-ion more

  • Molecular Russian doll helps to solve chemical problem

    A Catalan-German research team has succeeded in using a three-shell 'matryoshka' architecture to solve a long-standing problem in chemical synthesis. The researchers from Girona and Ulm have developed a three-dimensional construct of nested molecules, which is best imagined as a soccer ball stuck in more

Sir Harry Kroto & Buckminsterfullerene

Over the weekend, the news of Sir Harry Kroto’s passing filtered slowly through the internet. Perhaps the best summary of his life and achievements was already written by Kroto himself, so here we take a brief look at his most acclaimed discovery: that of the amusingly named form of carbon, buckmins more

Endohedral fullerenes

Endohedral fullerenes Endohedral fullerenes are fullerene s that have additional atoms, ions, or clusters enclosed within their inner spheres. The first lanthanum C60 complex was synthesed in 1985 called La@C60. The @ sign in the name reflects ... more
