scientists have found a new way to success, you can create super long and stable of 1 d Carbon chain, its strength than that of Carbon nanotubes (Carbon Nanotube) twice as strong, stronger than diamonds.
elusive card thanks
carbon is very flexible, scientists has been always making new carbon allotropes, durable and versatile material, like everyone's favourite material: Graphene (Graphene).
carbon group is very potential elements, however, even if has developed a lot of carbon materials, CARDS and worshipped (carbyne, also have translation "acetylene carbon", "linear carbon") is still elusive.Scientists studied 50 years, still can't create card, this is the only one that scientists can't create patterns.
one of the reasons is the worship extremely unstable, Adolf von Baeyer in 1885 for the first time found that the one dimensional chain, at that time He said thanks to the high reactivity of lead to immediately after the formation of disintegration, is an elusive material.
what should we do?
in theory, the card of the mechanical properties more than all the known material, hard twice than that of graphene, 40 times is harder than diamond and tensile strength is higher than other carbon materials.Because of these features, so everyone is trying to make stable, thanks.
now, with an international research team found the worship to mass production methods.
they will be two layers of graphene pressed together, and then rolled into thin double carbon nanotubes.To use nanotubes coated atoms, protect the carbon chain disruption.The study, published in the journal nature materials.
before the discovery of the carbon chain record is 100 atoms, the new method to break the record, set up new record of 6400 atoms, and the carbon chain can remain in a stable state.
in addition, the card of the longer the chain, it will increase as the electrical properties, so researchers can more successfully and effectively research the nanotubes.Card of application range is very wide, in this magical material after launch, will appear what kind of new product?Let's look forward to.
