Wavy carbon: a new series of carbon structures explored by quantum chemical calculations


Ohno, Koichi; Satoh, Hiroko; Iwamoto, Takeaki; Tokoyama, Hiroaki; Yamakado, Hideo (2015). Wavy carbon: a new series of carbon structures explored by quantum chemical calculations. Chemical Physics Letters, 639:178-182.

Abstract

A new carbon family adopting wavy structures has been found by quantum chemical calculations. The key motif of this family is a condensed four-membered ring. Periodically wavy-carbon sheets (wavy-Cn sheets, n = 2, 6, and 8) as well as wavy-C36 tube were found to be very similar to the previously reported prism-Cn carbon tubes (n = 5, 6, and 8) in several respects, including the relative energies per one carbon atom with respect to graphene, CC bond lengths, and CCC bond angles. Because of very high relative energies with respect to graphene (206–253 kJ mol−1), the wavy-carbons may behave as energy reserving materials.
