Metals Under Extreme Environments
Plan to attend the EFree-sponsored symposium Extreme Environments—A Route to Novel Materials at the MRS Spring meeting in San Francisco on April 2-4, 2013 ! Discounted preregistration is open until March 15th.
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.
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.
C60 has been polymerized under high pressure . 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 . Interestingly, (7, 0) nanotubes appear to form a (4+4) juncture, as shown in Figure 7 (c).
