Carbon-rich molecules "supersized" for the first timeEugene, OR | Posted on December 02, 2005
A University of Oregon chemist has "supersized"
carbon-rich molecules, enabling researchers for the first time to test
theories about the useful properties of synthetic forms of carbon. The
discovery by Mike Haley will be published as the cover story in the Dec.
9 edition of the Journal of Organic Chemistry (JOC). The story will be
posted on the JOC website today (Dec. 2).
Scientists have long predicted that unnatural forms of carbon could have
many technologically useful properties, much like those found for the
natural phases of carbon, which are graphite and diamond. Haley's
research seeks to prove those predictions are true and to do so, the new
carbon materials must be of sufficient size to observe their properties.
