In view of the formal topology, two common terms, namely, the connectivity and adjacency, determine the ‘quality’ of the C–C bonds of sp 2 nanocarbons. The feature is the most sensitive point of the inherent topology of the species so that such external action as the mechanical deformation should obviously change it and result in particular topological effects. The current chapter describes the effects caused by uniaxial tension of a graphene molecule in due course of the mechanochemical…

Spin-orbit concept of open-shell systems

The paper presents a first attempt to look at the peculiarities of open-shell systems from the viewpoint of spin-orbit coupling. Contrary to common opinion of a negligible role of the issue for light

Digital Twins in Graphene Technology

The Digital Twins concept in science has a long history that goes back to the beginnings of now widely accepted modelling. The ever-expanding amount of digital data accompanying modelling could not



Mechanochemical reaction in graphane under uniaxial tension

The quantum-mechanochemical-reaction-coordinate simulations have been performed to investigate the mechanical properties of hydrogen functionalized graphene. The simulations disclosed atomically

Topochemistry of Spatially Extended sp 2 Nanocarbons: Fullerenes, Nanotubes, and Graphene

Effect of chemical modification of edge atoms of graphene sheets on their strength

Basing on the molecular theory of graphene, the influence of the chemical modification of edge atoms of a graphene sheet is studied in terms of mechanochemical reactions. The mechanical behavior of

A tricotage-like failure of nanographene

The response of a nanographene sheet to external stresses was considered in terms of a mechanochemical reaction and a drastic anisotropy in the microscopic behavior of both objects under elongation along a MIC was observed.
