The Fullerenes by H. W Kroto( Book )

32 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1985, Buckminsterfullerene (fullerene-60) C[subscript 60] was discovered serendipitously during graphite laser vaporization experiments designed to simulate the chemistry in a red giant carbon star. The molecule was isolated for the first time in macroscopic amounts in 1990, a breakthrough which triggered an explosion of research into its chemical and physical properties. The fullerenes hold great potential for material science applications, such as semiconductors and microscopic engineering, and as new compounds for pharmaceuticals, polymers and the chemical industry. Buckminsterfullerene possesses a beauty and elegance that has excited the imaginations of laymen and scientists alike. It seems almost impossible to comprehend how the existence of the third well-characterized allotrope of carbon could have evaded discovery until virtually the end of the twentieth century. In October 1992 a Discussion Meeting of the Royal Society entitled 'A Post-Buckminsterfullerene View of the Chemistry, Physics and Astrophysics of Carbon' organized by H.W. Kroto, A.L. MacKay, G. Turner and D.R.M. Walton, was held to celebrate this exciting advance. The scientists who played key roles in the discovery and who are currently uncovering fascinating problems and the implications of this elegant molecule, presented the papers published in this book."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new publication brings together contemporary approaches for designing nanostructures that employ naturally derived self-assembling motifs as synthetic platforms
Spectroscopy, dynamics and molecular theory of carbon plasmas and vapors : advances in the understanding of the most complex high-temperature elemental system by Stephan Irle( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a stop-gap contribution to the science and technology of carbon plasmas and carbon vapors. It strives to cover two strongly related fields: the molecular quantum theory of carbon plasmas and carbon nanostructures; and the molecular and atomic spectroscopy of such plasmas and vapors. These two fields of research are strongly intertwined and thus reinforce one another."--Provided by publisher

Beyond belief Enlightenment 2.0( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As you watch the conversation in Beyond Belief: Enlightenment 2.0, it might help to know about one of the sources that was helpful to me in formulating the agenda, assembling the cast of characters, and setting the tone for the meeting. I quoted this passage from Humanity: A Moral History of the Twentieth Century by Jonathan Glover (who directs the Centre of Medical Law and Ethics at King's College, London): "Now we tend to see the Enlightenment view of human psychology as thin and mechanical, and Enlightenment hopes of social progress through the spread of humanitarianism and the scientific outlook as naive ... One of this book's aims is to replace the thin, mechanical psychology of the Enlightenment with something more complex, something closer to reality ... another aim of the book is to defend the Enlightenment hope of a world that is more peaceful and humane, the hope that by understanding more about ourselves we can do something to create a world with less misery. I have qualified optimism that this hope is well founded ..." I say Amen to that. If Enlightenment 1.0 took a thin and mechanical view of human nature and psychology, I think Enlightenment 2.0 can offer a much 'thicker' and cognitively richer account - less naive and also, perhaps, less hubristic. If there's one thing we've learned - particularly from cognitive neuroscience - it is that we need to have some strategic humility about the hobby horses we are inclined to ride".--Website

Beyond belief science, reason, religion & survival( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Just 40 years after a famous TIME magazine cover asked "Is God Dead?" the answer appears to be a resounding "No!" According to a survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life in a recent issue of Foreign Policy magazine, "God is Winning". Religions are increasingly a geopolitical force to be reckoned with. Fundamentalist movements - some violent in the extreme - are growing. Science and religion are at odds in the classrooms and courtrooms. And a return to religious values is widely touted as an antidote to the alleged decline in public morality. After two centuries, could this be twilight for the Enlightenment project and the beginning of a new age of unreason? Will faith and dogma trump rational inquiry, or will it be possible to reconcile religious and scientific worldviews? Can evolutionary biology, anthropology and neuroscience help us to better understand how we construct beliefs, and experience empathy, fear and awe? Can science help us create a new rational narrative as poetic and powerful as those that have traditionally sustained societies? Can we treat religion as a natural phenomenon? Can we be good without God? And if not God, then what? This is a critical moment in the human situation, and The Science Network in association with the Crick-Jacobs Center brought together an extraordinary group of scientists and philosophers to explore answers to these questions".--Website

Fragments of fullerenes and carbon nanotubes : designed synthesis, unusual reactions, and coordination chemistry by Lawrence T Scott( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first of its kind to reflect upon the intense and rapidly growing interest in open geodesic polyaromatic molecules, specifically focusing on their synthesis and reactivity in metal binding reactions. The book broadly covers all aspects related to the fullerene fragment chemistry: current synthetic techniques, description of the available members of this new family (which has grown to more than two dozens members, with none being available commercially), molecular geometry and trends in the solid state packing, as well as extensions into physical properties and new buckybowl-
