Announcing the sale of Trimetaspheres -- fullerene spheres enclosing three metal atoms, providing unique physical, chemical, thermal, magnetic, biological, optical and electronic properties

Luna nanoWorks Sell Unique Carbon Nanomaterials

Posted on March 13, 2006

Luna nanoWorks announces the availability of its exciting new class of carbonaceous nanomaterials. Luna’s new composition of matter, called a Trimetasphere™; (M3N@C80), is a fullerene sphere enclosing three metal atoms in a nitride molecule. The entrapped metals provide unique physical, chemical, thermal, magnetic, biological, optical and electronic properties that differentiate them from other carbon nanomaterials. For example, the carbon sphere in Trimetasphere™; carbon nanomaterials are stable at temperatures hundreds of degrees above that at which empty cage fullerenes would be destroyed.

Luna’s exclusive Trimetasphere™ carbon nanomaterials are now available in four species for purchase. Group B III and lanthanide atoms, in C80 fullerene cages, including Sc3N@C80; Lu3N@C80; Y3N@C80 and Er3N@C80. Order online at or call 1-434-483-4195.
