Remote-control closed system invented for inserting radio-active atoms inside fullerenes

The new material will increase control of radiation therapy


Virginia Tech chemistry Professor Harry C. Dorn, Emory and Henry College chemistry Professor James Duchamp, and Panos Fatouros, professor and chair of the Division of Radiation Physics and Biology at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine have co-invented a hands-off process for ...

Building with pentagons


Achim Müller and co-workers from Bielefeld University and Marshall Luban with his co-workers from the Departments of Physics and Astronomy at both Francis Marion University and Iowa State University worked on synthesising a Keplerate using pentagonal tungsten-oxide based units and studied its ...

Fullerenes well trapped


Scientists in Australia and India have shown that a zinc porphyrin-based yoctowell can be used as a fullerene receptor. Sheshanath Bhosale and colleagues from Monash University and a co-worker from North Maharashtra University, have designed a yoctowell cavity (a nanoporous surface modified with ...


Synthesis with a template

Carbon-free fullerene analogue


The discovery of a soccer-ball-shaped molecule made of 60 carbon atoms was a minor revolution in chemistry: Fullerenes are spherical, highly symmetrical molecules made of carbon atoms, and are the third form of carbon after diamond and graphite. However, the C60 "soccer ball" is not the only ...


Nano-C Awarded Fundamental Patents for Carbon Nanotube and Fullerene Manufacturing


Nano-C, Inc., developer of nanostructured carbon materials, announced that it has been issued U.S. Patent Nos. 7,335,344 and 7,396,520 by the Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office. These newly issued patents cover the manufacture of Nano-C’s core products, carbon ...


NSF-funded Rice study will trace path of nanomaterials

Researchers want to know if particles can be transported through food chain


Working to ensure the safe use of nanomaterials is the basis of a new Rice study funded by the National Science Foundation. Led by Pedro Alvarez, the George R. Brown Professor and chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, and Vicki Colvin, the Pitzer-Schlumberger Professor of ...


Fullerene size matters

How does the reactivity of metallofullerenes correlate with the size of the cage?


Luis Echegoyen and co-workers at Clemson University, US and Luna Innovations Inc., Danville, Virginia have uncovered the reactivity of the higher trimetallic nitride endohedral metallofullerene cages (TNT EMF). Endohedral metallo fullerenes (EMF) are fullerenes that have metal atoms enclosed ...


Breakthrough in nanotechnology by uncovering conductive property of carbon-based molecules

Newfound ability of organic molecules to conduct electricity opens door to smaller, cheaper and more powerful technologies


University of Pittsburgh researchers have discovered that certain organic - or carbon-based - molecules exhibit the properties of atoms under certain circumstances and, in turn, conduct electricity as well as metal. Detailed in Science, the finding is a breakthrough in developing nanotechnology ...


Rock 'n' Roll Down the Tubes

Metal-filled fullerenes are "hopping" inside of carbon nanotubes


The technical world keeps getting smaller. Eventually the miniaturization of chips will reach dimensions at which individual atoms will have to be manipulated. As components of a quantum computer or nanoelectronics of the future, self-assembled molecular arrangements that look like nanoscopic ...
