Fullerenes Enter Our Life

Abstract:
Discussions of International conference "Fullerenes and Atomic Clusters" (IWFAC'2007) have united world leading scientists in Saint Petersburg, where the meeting was held for the eighth time.

Nowadays the amount of published scientific works, dealing with nanomaterials, which include fullerenes, exceeds 40 thousands. Brand new nanocarbon materials allow creating items, which have unique parameters - for example, self-phone batteries, which keep working for years; polymer solar batteries, serving as sleeping mats for travellers; contrast media for magnetic tomography and many more.

Existence of fullerenes - a new form of carbon - was predicted over 20 years ago, and later said compounds have been synthesized. Fullerenes look like closed coreless structures, containing carbon atoms in their nodes.
