Mechanically, Thermally Stable 3-D Metallic Carbon with Interlocking Hexagons Discovered

Mechanically, Thermally Stable 3-D Metallic Carbon with Interlocking Hexagons Discovered

Design and synthesis of three-dimensional (3D) metallic carbon that is stable under ambient conditions has been a long-standing dream. Recently a new progress has been made by Professor Wang Qian ’s research group at the Center for Applied Physics and Technology (CAPT), College of Engineering of Peking University and her collaborators in this subject. They predict the existence of such phases consisting of interlocking hexagons. [More]

Magnetic Hollow Cages Larger Than Original Fullerene May be Possible

Virginia Commonwealth University researchers have discovered, in theory, the possibility of creating large, hollow magnetic cage molecules that could one day be used in medicine as a drug delivery system to non-invasively treat tumors, and in other emerging technologies. [More]
Single Water Molecule Isolated Inside a Buckyball

Single Water Molecule Isolated Inside a Buckyball

Columbia Engineering researchers have developed a technique to isolate a single water molecule inside a buckyball, or C60, and to drive motion of the so-called "big" nonpolar ball through the encapsulated "small" polar H2O molecule, a controlling transport mechanism in a nanochannel under an external electric field.

Researchers Obtain Molecular View of Polymer/Fullerene Solar Film

Why are efficient and affordable solar cells so highly coveted? Volume. The amount of solar energy lighting up Earth's land mass every year is nearly 3,000 times the total amount of annual human energy use. But to compete with energy from fossil fuels, photovoltaic devices must convert sunlight to electricity with a certain measure of efficiency. For polymer-based organic photovoltaic cells, which are far less expensive to manufacture than silicon-based solar cells, scientists have long believed that the key to high efficiencies rests in the purity of the polymer/organic cell's two domains – acceptor and donor. Now, however, an alternate and possibly easier route forward has been shown. [More]
