    • DIAMOND The Allotrope of Carbon
    • Molecular Structure • http://www.worldofmolecules.com/interactive_m • 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) • It is impossible to determine who found it • Large quantities found in Africa in 1867
    • 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 is a crystalline form of Carbon
