It remains a cage: ionization tolerance of C60 fullerene in planetary nebulae: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0

Summary We display that by combining two sturdy theoretical quantum chemistry calculation methods, stepwise ionization of C60 fullerene by UV and excessive UV photons can in precept happen as much as a restrict as excessive as C60 26+ earlier than coulomb explosion of the cage. Moreover, these extremely ionized varieties exhibit a comparable structural and … Read more
