Item description for The Chemistry of Fullerenes by Roger Taylor...

The closed-cage carbon molecules known as fullerenes provide an entirely new branch of chemistry, materials science, and physics. Fullerene research is now engaging the frenetic attention of thousands of scientists. Initially, the chemistry was relatively slow to develop due to the low availability of material, and the need for state-of-the-art instrumentation for product analysis. This research area is now very definitely up-and-running, and will soon become the main focus of attention in the fullerene field. The number of published papers already runs into hundreds, and the main features of fullerene reactivity have been established. This book describes all of the known types of reactions as well as the means of production, the purification, and the properties of fullerenes.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Chemistry of Fullerenes?

This is a nice book, indeed - valuable contents, a pleasant form. The book is a contributed volume of fifteen carefully selected chapters. The first contribution (although the author is not specified) suggests a systematic nomenclature for fullerenes, e.g. C60 - [60]fullerene, and numbering schemes. It also contains a statement which still needs to be recognized by the fullerene community: 'C60, the most accessible (but not necessarily the most stable fullerene).

Of the fourteen remaining chapters, seven come from R. Taylor (properties of fullerenes, halogenation, aryl derivatives, electrophilic addition, nucleophilic addition, radical addition, fullerene-containing polymers). The other half originated in various world centres of the fullerene research and concentrates on local specialities. L.D. Lamb writes on what made Tucson world famous - the fullerene production. P.A. Cahill reports on computations of hydrogenated fullerenes and compares them with available observations. L.Y. Chiang treats water-soluble polyhydroxylated fullerene derivatives and various ways of their characterization. Another system with an application potential, fluorinated fullerenes, is surveyed by J.H. Holloway and E.G. Hope. M. Prato and F. Wudl deal with various bridged fullerenes: methano, oxa, aza, sila. Cyclo-additon chemistry is described in a chapter by M.S. Meier. And finally, A.L. Balch reviews inorganic and organometallic derivatives of fullerenes.

All this is presented on 274 pages of an exciting book, which is also Volume 4 of the Advanced Series in Fullerenes.
