Old Astronomic Riddle on the Way to Be Solved

17-Jul-2015

Scientists at the University of Basel were able to identify for the first time a molecule responsible for the absorption of starlight in space: the positively charged Buckminsterfullerene, or so-called football molecule. Their results have been published in the current issue of “Nature”. Almost ...

How to maximize the superconducting critical temperature in a molecular superconductor

International team led by Tohoku University opens new route for discovering high Tc superconductors

21-Apr-2015

An international research team, led by Professor Kosmas Prassides of Tohoku University, has investigated the electronic properties of the family of unconventional superconductors based on fullerenes which have the highest known superconducting critical temperature (Tc) among molecular ...

30 years after C60: Fullerene Chemistry with Silicon

23-Mar-2015

The discovery of the soccer ball-shaped C60 molecule in 1985 was a milestone for the development of nanotechnology. In parallel with the fast-blooming field of research into carbon fullerenes, researchers have spent a long time trying in vain to create structurally similar silicon cages. Goethe ...

Buckyballs offer environmental benefits

In Rice University study, treated carbon-60 molecules remove metals from liquids

12-Feb-2015

Treated buckyballs not only remove valuable but potentially toxic metal particles from water and other liquids, but also reserve them for future use, according to scientists at Rice University.The Rice lab of chemist Andrew Barron has discovered that carbon-60 fullerenes (aka buckyballs) that ...

Carbon nanoballs can greatly contribute to sustainable energy supply

29-Jan-2015

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have discovered that the insulation plastic used in high-voltage cables can withstand a 26 per cent higher voltage if nanometer-sized carbon balls are added. This could result in enormous efficiency gains in the power grids of the future, which are ...

Researchers watch layers of football molecules grow

07-Nov-2014

Using DESY's ultrabright X-ray source PETRA III, researchers have observed in real-time how football-shaped carbon molecules arrange themselves into ultra-smooth layers. Together with theoretical simulations, the investigation reveals the fundamentals of this growth process for the first time in ...

Researchers 'cage' water to see it change form

18-Jun-2014

Scientists are using a pioneering method of 'caging' and cooling water molecules to study the change in orientation of the magnetic nuclei at the centre of each hydrogen atom - a process which transforms the molecule from one form of water to another. By trapping water molecules in carbon spheres ...
