• http://edobobik.kilu.de/carbon.html
Intermolecular Forces
• London Dispersion Forces only!
Solubility and Polarity
• Diamond (Carbon) is
insoluble in water

• Diamond (Carbon) is
non-polar
• Discovered in India almost 6000 years ago
- likely found at site of meteor strike
(only
other place is the lithosphere)
...
Mining
• Lithosphere about 10 km deep
• 130,000,000 carats mined annually
- worth $9 billion
Uses
Antoine Lavoisier and Carbon
• Introduced the
possibility of allotropy
in chemical elements
• Experiment in 1772
• Diamond...
