Question Description

Hello, please write a 5 page long double spaced essay about the molecule fullerene, using the following questions as guidelines:

I WILL BE LOOKING FOR ALL ITEMS!! Please read and take into account while writing, carefully.

1. Talk about the discovery of fullerene? when?how?by whom?

2. Discuss how it is being used? in what fields? what areas? by what type of scientists?

3. What research is being done on it? Very important!

4. Please also talk about the relation of this molecule's utilization to nano technology.

Please also include a works cited page.


Thank you

Introduction
Fullerene is a well-known carbon allotrope, whose molecular structure has double and
single bonds in order to create a partially closed or completely closed mesh together with fused
rings of several atoms particularly 5 to 7. C60 is the most known member of fullerenes, which
is also referred to as buckminsterfullerene. This paper will look at the discovery of fullerene
particularly the period, the manner in which and who discovered the molecule. It will also offer
a deep comprehension of how it is being used by pinpointing the fields, areas, and types of
scientists regarding the molecule. In order to recognize its worthiness in the current regime, the
research being carried out on fullerene is explored by providing a relation of fullerene
utilization on nanotechnology.
Structure& Molecule Description
Fullerenes are a new class of molecules which are allotropes of Carbon discovered in
1985. Unlike diamond and graphite which are also allotropic forms of carbon, fullerenes are
made up of 12 pentagonal and 20 hexagonal rings in a hollow carbon cage structure. The most
accessible members of this group are C70 and C60 molecules. Cylindrical fullerenes are known
as

carbon

nanotubes while

spherical

fullerenes

are

known

as Buckyballs

or

Buckminsterfullerenes (C60). There are various types of fullerenes which have continuously
evolved since the discovery of fullerenes. These include the linked ``ball-and-chain”, Nano
“onions,” polymers, Megatubes, Nanotubes, and the Buckyball clusters (which span C20 –
C60) with different structural variations.
Though stable, these molecules are not entirely unreactive (Rakhmanov, Saff & Zhou,
2014). They undergo various reactions such as regioselective reaction, radical reaction,
halogenation, hydrogenation, oxidation, and reduction. Higher fullerenes such as C70 are
believed to be less stable compared to smaller derivativ...
