Title: Possibility of high temperature superconductivity in C{sub 36} and C{sub 24}N{sub 12} solids

Abstract

Some preliminary discussion is presented concerning predicting superconductivity in general and the properties of existing fullerene superconductors. This is followed by a consideration of the likelihood of superconductivity in C{sub 36} solids. Our present knowledge about C{sub 36} and the similar molecule C{sub 24}N{sub 12} is reviewed along with the relevant arguments used as a basis for suggesting that these systems are good candidates for superconductivity at relatively high temperatures.
