2 Overview 1.Defining nano 2.Formation of nanocarbon 3.Viewing the nanoscale; direct analysis 4.Indirect analysis of the nanoscale 5.Adsorption experiment

3 2. Formation of nanocarbon Carbon sp 3 hybridisation Carbon sp 2 hybridisation i.e. diamond i.e. graphite Difference in bonding geometry? © Fessenden & Fessenden, Organic Chemistry, 5 th Edition

4 © Benzene to graphite Properties: Good electrical conductance in-plane Good lubricant in air Good thermal & acoustic properties Poor strength

5 Graphite to nanotube © Youtube 2010

6 Graphite to nanotube m and n are integer lattice points a is the lattice constant of graphite = 0.246nm Diameter: Chiral angle: C h = n a 1 + m a 2 = (n,m)

7 Graphite to nanotube SWNTs: Zig-zag nanotubes (n,0) → Metallic when n is divisible by three Armchair nanotubes (n,n) → All are metallic. Chiral nanotubes (n,m) → Metallic when n-m = 3q, where q is an integer. © M. Terrones, et al. Top. Curr. Chem. 199, 189 (1999) Properties: Good electrical conductance Good thermal & acoustic properties High strength Poor lubricant

22 Nanocarbon in history “The first mention of the possibility of forming carbon filaments from the thermal decomposition of gaseous hydrocarbon (methane) was reported in 1889 - i.e. literally two centuries ago! – in a patent that proposed the use of such filaments in the light bulbs that had just been presented by Edison at the Paris Universal Exposition the same year.” 1889 totally unknown recognition © M. Monthioux, et al., CARBON 44 (2006) 1621 This refers to details contained within: Hughes TV, Chambers CR. US Patent 405480, 1889

24 Nanocarbon in history “The Permian-Triassic boundary (PTB) event, which occurred about 251.4 million years ago, is marked by the most severe mass extinction in the geologic record. Recent studies of some PTB sites indicate that the extinctions occurred very abruptly, consistent with a catastrophic, possibly extraterrestrial, cause. Fullerenes (C 60 to C 200 ) from sediments at the PTB contain trapped helium and argon with isotope ratios similar to the planetary component of carbonaceous chondrites. These data imply that an impact event (asteroidal or cometary) accompanied the extinction, as was the case for the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event about 65 million years ago. ” © Luann Becker, et al., Science, 291, 1530 - 1533 (2001) A really long time ago…

25 Questions on formation 1.If the smallest diameter single-walled carbon nanotube is 0.4nm (N. Wang, et al., Nature 408, 50-51 (2000)) for a zig-zag configuration, what is n and m? 2.What prevents this value from being smaller? 3.Is this carbon nanotube metallic? 4.What changes to a single sheet of graphite will cause enclosure to form a C 60 molecule? Which ones are needed to form a spiral nanotube?
