New Form of Carbon Dents Diamonds and More

Abstract:
Nanomaterial science has sometimes resulted in redefining the known forms of carbon. When carbon nanotubes were first discovered over twenty years ago the long-held paradigm of there being just three forms of carbon (diamond, graphite, and amorphous carbon) had to be reassessed.

Now an international team of researchers working at Argonne National Laboratory's Advanced Photon Source is reporting that they have developed another new form of carbon that is so strong it can dent a diamond.
