Fullerene C[sub 60]

Abstract

This book, one of the first to be published in the exciting field of fullerenes, includes a short history of scientific discovery, as well as one possible answer to the question: for what purposes can C[sub 60] be utilized. The book opens with a review of the life of Buckminster Fuller. Modern history of fivefold symmetry and the icosahedron began between 1984 and 1985, when Shechtman and his research team opened a new branch in crystallography (fivefold symmetry) and when the Kroto/Smalley research team discovered the C[sub 60] molecule (truncated icosahedron). Production of solid C[sub 60] by the Huffman/Kraeschner research team in 1990 provided a new stimulus for research by producing C[sub 60] in macroscopic amounts for use by the scientific and technological community. This achievement led to developments such as Koruga's August 1992 creation of the dimer C[sub 116] using scanning tunneling engineering and Loutfy's hydrogenation of C[sub 60] and construction of the first Ni/C[sub 60] rechargeable batteries in December 1992. New inventions based on C[sub 60] will continue to be forthcoming, particularly in the areas of superconductivity, quantum devices, and molecular electronic devices.

New inventions based on C[sub 60] will continue to be forthcoming, particularly in the areas of superconductivity, quantum devices, and molecular electronic devices. Discovery of the C[sub 60] molecule (Kroto/Smalley), production of solid C[sub 60] (Huffman/Kraeschmer) and technological inventions such as C[sub 116] (Koruga) have been chance discoveries. A short history of these discoveries is detailed in the book along with the results of the authors' Fullerene research efforts, including atomic resolution images of Fullerene C[sub 60], Ni/C[sub 60] batteries, nanotechnology of C[sub 60], comparison of C[sub 60] with biological systems, and others. As Fullerene C[sub 60] will require control engineering, an overview of control systems, in particular, general and optimal control of the Schroedinger equation, is contained. Some experimental and theoretical work of other researchers are also presented. 140 figs., 4 tabs., 342 refs.}
