  • THE fullerenes C60 and C70 were first identified1 in carbon vapour produced by laser irradiation of graphite, and have recently been produced in macroscopic quantities2–5 by vaporization of graphite with resistive heating. It has also been suggested6–9 that fullerenes might be formed in sooting flames, and indeed all-carbon ions with mass/charge ratios suggestive of fullerenes have been detected in flames10–12. These species were assumed to have the cage structures of fullerenes, but the mass… CONTINUE READING
