Using a reductive sidewall functionalization concept we prepared for the first time a covalent inter-carbon-allotrope hybrid consisting of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and the endohedral fullerene Sc3N@C80. The characterization of this new compound type was accomplished by a variety of techniques including absorption spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, TG-MS, TG-GC-MS and MALDI-TOF mass spectroscopy. HRTEM investigations were carried out to visualize this highly integrated architecture.

In this work, we theoretically designed a new class of fullerene derivatives, metallofullerene heterodimers, through cross dimerization of metallofullerene monomers Li@C60, Y@C82 and Y2@C80. The molec...
Steering the cluster configuration inside a fullerene cage has been one of most interesting topics in the field of fullerenes, since the physical property of a cluster fullerene may be modified accord...
Classical fullerenes are composed of hexagons and pentagons only, and specifically the pentagons are decisive for the stability of the entire molecule. According to the isolated pentagon rule (IPR) pr...
1. Fullerene C60 is used in a variety of industrial and consumer capacities. As part of a comprehensive evaluation of the toxicity of fullerene C60 by the National Toxicology Program, the disposition ...
The engineered carbon nanomaterial, fullerene C, with unique physicochemical properties, released into the aquatic environment is known to formulate high risk factor for the aquatic life. The present ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of two carbon monoxide doses when administered as an inhaled gas for 1 hour in patients receiving kidney transplants.
We aim to test our method for measuring chemosensitivity (the ventilatory response to a change in carbon dioxide), which uses sinusoidal carbon dioxide stimuli. Hypotheses: - Ca...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a relationship exists between EtCO2 and carboxyhemoglobin levels in carbon monoxide exposure. Our hypothesis is that a liner relationship ...
Carbon-12 and carbon-13 are naturally-abundant isotopes in exhaled breath carbon dioxide. The ratio of carbon-13 to carbon-12 in exhaled breath is known as the breath delta value. This stu...
Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) is the cornerstone of blood sugar monitoring. As HbA1c is formed by the covalent reaction of glucose with hemoglobin throughout the lifespan of the red blood cell (R...
A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.
Unsaturated derivatives of the ESTRANES with methyl groups at carbon-13, with no carbon at carbon-10, and with no more than one carbon at carbon-17. They must contain one or more double bonds.
Enzymes that catalyze the joining of two molecules by the formation of a carbon-carbon bond. These are the carboxylating enzymes and are mostly biotinyl-proteins. EC 6.4.
The sole species of the genus Oxalobacter consisting of straight or curved gram-negative rods with rounded ends. Cells are nonmotile, nonsporing, and use oxylates as the only source of CARBON and energy, with formate and CARBON DIOXIDE as end products. They are isolated from lake sediments and from the rumen or large bowel of humans and animals. (From Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, 9th ed)
Enzymes that catalyze the cleavage of a carbon-carbon bond by means other than hydrolysis or oxidation. This subclass contains the DECARBOXYLASES, the ALDEHYDE-LYASES, and the OXO-ACID-LYASES. EC 4.1.
Multiple Sclerosis MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting 100,000 young adults in the UK. The condition results from autoimmune damage to myelin, causing interference in nerve signaling. Symptoms experienced depend on the pa...
