Morphology and symmetry of giant fullerenes
- 30 Downloads
Giant fullerenes are a kind of fullerene with a large (102–105) number of atoms. They are characterized by a flattening of the hexagonal segments of a carbon mesh to the graphene-like state followed by the formation of polyhedra having 2–12 vertices. In this work, the dependence of the shape and symmetry of the giant fullerenes on the arrangement of pentagonal carbon rings on their surface is considered.
