    • Confined linear carbon chains as a route to bulk carbyne 

      Shi, L.; Rohringer, P.; Suenaga, K.; Niimi, Y.; Kotakoski, J.; Meyer, J. C.; Peterlik, H.; Wanko, M.; Cahangirov, S.; Rubio, A.; Lapin, Z. J.; Novotny, L.; Ayala, P.; Pichler, T. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-04)
      Strong chemical activity and extreme instability in ambient conditions characterize carbyne, an infinite sp1 hybridized carbon chain. As a result, much less has been explored about carbyne as compared to other carbon ...
    • Use of saccharides as solid-state precursors for the synthesis of carbon nanotubes 

      Kucukayan, G.; Kayacan, S.; Baykal, B.; Bengu, E. (Materials Research Society, 2008)
      Saccharides, ranging from simple table sugar (sucrose) to lactulose were successfully used as solid-state precursors for the synthesis of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT). Dehydrated saccharide residues mixed with ...
