  • 6 Hydrogen Atoms 1 0 These Charges
    702 words
    Molecular Structure Lab Objective: For this experiment we took two different molecule and virtually dissected them finding everything about them including: bond length, bond angles, the charge on each atom, the non bonded distances between atoms and the energy difference between the highest and lowest molecular orbital. Procedure: The procedure is to use Hyper Chem Lite to get the information needed from each molecule. But explained in full on page 16 and 17 in the lab manual. Data: The followin...
  • Buckminster Fullerene Molecules
    710 words
    Overall View of Fullerenes Natural Carbons can usually exist in several forms. The most common are Graphite and diamond, but most people don t know that there is a third type fullerenes. Many have mistaken these fullerenes for a new type of carbon. Fullerenes have been discovered in interstellar dust as well as in geological formations on Earth, but they are very new to us. As with many important scientific discoveries, Fullerenes were discovered by accident. The C 60 molecule was discovered by ...
  • Atomic Number 6 Carbon
    660 words
    When you look at the periodic table, you see a lot of letters, some numbers, different colors, and areas divided into rows and sections. There is one element on the periodic table that stands out above and beyond others, an element you should be greatful for it's discovery! That element, of course, being the one and only atomic number 6 Carbon! Now, you might be asking yourself what is so special about Carbon I don't even know what it does let alone it's importance to us! However, through out th...
  • Discovery Of A Molecular Solid Carbon
    1,067 words
    The Scientific Significance of Buckyballs by Chemistry Section General Chemistry Prof. Spring 199 Until the mid-1980's, elemental carbon was believed only to exhibit two main allotropic forms, diamond and graphite, both of which are covalent-network solids. However, Nobel Prize winning research conducted in the United States and Europe has confirmed the existence of a third previously unknown form of carbon- buckminsterfullerene (C 60). The discovery of buckminsterfullerene's, named after Richar...
  • Carbon Atom By A Single Bond
    1,017 words
    As with many important scientific discoveries, buckyball was discovered by accident. In 1985, the American chemist R.E. Smalley at Rice University, the British chemist H.F. Kroto at Sussex, and graduate students working under their direction were studying the nature of interstellar matter. They wanted to know what forms of carbon-containing materials can be found between the stars. The overall strategy of the research was to compare spectroscopic readings from unidentified matter in interstellar...
  • Carbon Bond Distance In Benzene
    589 words
    Benzene Benzene, C (6) H (6), is a clear, colorless, flammable liquid that is insoluble in water. Its boiling point is 80 degrees C (176 degrees F). In the past benzene was obtained from the distillation of coal in the absence of air. Today most benzene is made synthetically from petroleum products. The benzene is a closed ring of six atoms connected by bonds that resonate between single and double bonds; each carbon is also bound to a single atom. Benzene is insoluble in water but mixes in all ...
  • Organic Chemistry Comparisons Of Carbon Compounds
    1,078 words
    Organic Chemistry is the study of carbon containing compounds. Which may include numerous important compounds, just to name a few of them, are methane (natural gas), sugar, and aspirin, most biological compounds are organic. Inorganic Compounds deals with compounds found primarily in the nonliving parts of the earth which are for instance; rocks, water and air. I will be distinguishing between organic and inorganic and their characteristics. I will also be including their properties, which repre...
