A new Type of Carbon: Fullerenes as Exotic Materials

Katsumi Tanigaki

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


New types of carbon, C60 and tubules, as exotic materials are presented with reference to the relevant literature. Conductivity and superconductivity found for alkali C60 fullendes are described and discussed on a basis of crystal structure. The potential utility of the inner spaces of both C60 and tubules is also addressed from the nano material science point of view.
