Nanophysics: Serving up Buckyballs on a silver platter

Scientists at Penn State University, in collaboration with institutes in the US, Finland, Germany and the UK, have figured out the long-sought structure of a layer of C60 carbon buckyballs on a silver surface. The results, which could help in the design of carbon nanostructure-based electronics...

Manufactured Buckyballs don't harm microbes that clean the environment

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Even large amounts of manufactured nanoparticles, also known as Buckyballs, don't faze microscopic organisms that are charged with cleaning up the environment, according to Purdue University researchers. In the first published study to examine Buckyball toxicity on micro...

Tiny buckyballs squeeze hydrogen like giant Jupiter

HOUSTON, March 20, 2008 -- Hydrogen could be a clean, abundant energy source, but it's difficult to store in bulk. In new research, materials scientists at Rice University have made the surprising discovery that tiny carbon capsules called buckyballs are so strong they can hold volumes of hydrogen...

Researchers develop buckyballs to fight allergy

A research team has identified a new biological function for a soccer ball-shaped nanoparticle called a buckyball – the ability to block allergic response, setting the stage for the development of new therapies for allergy. Allergic disease is the sixth leading cause of chronic disease in the Un...

Self-assembled DNA buckyballs for drug delivery

DNA isn't just for storing genetic codes any more. Since DNA can polymerize -- linking many molecules together into larger structures -- scientists have been using it as a nanoscale building material, constructing geometric shapes and even working mechanical devices. Now Cornell University resear...

How buckyballs hurt cells

A new study into the potential health hazards of the revolutionary nano-sized particles known as buckyballs predicts that the molecules are easily absorbed into animal cells, providing a possible explanation for how the molecules could be toxic to humans and other organisms. Using computer simu...

Video shows buckyballs form by 'shrink wrapping'

HOUSTON, Oct. 26, 2007 -- The birth secret of buckyballs -- hollow spheres of carbon no wider than a strand of DNA -- has been caught on tape by researchers at Sandia National Laboratory and Rice University. An electron microscope video and computer simulations show that "shrink-wrapping" is the k...
