Metals Under Extreme Environments

Metals under extreme environments

Spent nuclear fuel

Many questions about spent nuclear fuel require a critical and urgent need for solid information. *Elements* has made the entire Nuclear Fuel Cycle issue free on-line. The editors wish to make scientific information available to local journalists, teachers, and the public in general. Articles are written for a broad audience.

(Barely) solid Li(NH3)4: The electronics of an expanded metal

This project, work done mainly by Eva Zurek, now at U. of Buffalo, together with Peter Edwards, Neil Ashcroft and Roald Hoffmann,  is not supported by E-Free, but is relevant to E-Free interests.



Cycloaddition reaction of carbon nanotubes and benzene under high pressure

C60 has been polymerized under high pressure [4]. However, due to a lack of a method for structural analysis of carbon nanotubes, no real information on the structure of the materials is available. It is natural to ask whether under high pressure, a cycloaddition reaction can also happen between carbon nanotubes. Theoretically, pressure-induced interlinking of carbon nanotubes was reported [5]. Interestingly, (7, 0) nanotubes appear to form a (4+4) juncture, as shown in Figure 7 (c).
