Nov 2013 - Carbon, Fullerenes and Diamonds

Carbon can take the form of graphite so we can use it to cook our food on a bbq, or write our notes using a pencil. It can also be a girl’s best friend on a girl’s finger, but another structure has been found that has made scientists excited about a new world. The world of Fullerenes.

Irene Sciriha will be speaking about the Carbon Fullerene in the next Malta Café Scientifique talk: Carbon, Fullerenes and Diamonds. The event will be on Thursday 14th November, 7.30pm (doors open 7.15) Music Room, St James Cavalier, Valletta.

She will be questioning what makes Carbon Fullerenes so interesting. What are their applications? Why are Nut Fullerenes so special and where does Maths fit into all of this? What makes the Carbon 60 structure so fascinating?

Thanks to the Malta Chamber of Scientists, Malta Café Scientifique now has another home apart from Facebook: . You can now view events and subscribe to our mailing list from the website.
