Allotropes of carbon

  1. 1. COORDINATE COVALENT<br />Coordinate covalent bond <br />-a covalent bond in which one atom contributes both electrons<br />-once such bond is formed we cannot tell it from regular covalent bond<br />Example: HCl + NH3 forms NH4Cl<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. METALLIC BONDS<br />-Electron Sea Model<br />-pictures a solid metal as a network of positive ions immersed in “sea of electrons”<br />-electrons in the sea are free (not attached to any particular ion) and they are mobile.<br />
  4. 4. NETWORK COVALENT SOLIDS<br />Solids in which all the atoms are Bonded covalently.<br />Properties:<br />Very hard<br />Very high mp<br />Poor thermal and electrical conductors<br />Example: C (diamond)<br />
  5. 5. Allotropes of Carbon<br />
  6. 6. Allotropes of Carbon<br />Diamond is one of the best known allotropes of carbon.<br />useful for both industrial applications and jewelry.<br />hardest known natural mineral.<br />dominant industrial use is in cutting, drilling, grinding (diamond edged cutters), and polishing.<br />
  7. 7. Allotropes of Carbon<br /><ul><li>Graphite- (graphein, "to draw/write", for its use in pencils).
  8. 8. Unlike diamond, graphite is an electrical conductor.
  9. 9. the most stable form of carbon.
  10. 10. Graphite powder is used as a dry lubricant.
  11. 11. A single layer of graphite is called graphene.</li></li></ul><li>Allotropes of Carbon<br /><ul><li>Amorphous carbon - carbon that does not have any crystalline structure.
  12. 12. some short-range order can be observed, but there is no long-range pattern of atomic positions..
  13. 13. Coal and soot or carbon black are informally called amorphous carbon.</li></li></ul><li>Allotropes of Carbon<br />Coal<br />is a sought-after energy source. It has the largest reserve and is often the cheapest of the fuel options.<br /> fossil fuel created from the remains of plants that lived and<br />
  14. 14. Allotropes of Carbon<br />Soot- also known as black carbon, is the second-leading cause of global warming after carbon dioxide<br />a black, carbonaceous substance produced during incomplete combustion of coal, wood, oil, etc.<br />
  15. 15. Allotropes of Carbon<br /><ul><li>Fullerenes- buckminsterfullerenes, or usually just fullerenes or buckyballs for short.
  16. 16. are molecules of varying sizes composed entirely of carbon, which take the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, or tube
  17. 17. were under study for potential medicinal use — binding specific antibiotics to the structure to target resistant bacteria and even target certain cancer cells such as melanoma.</li></li></ul><li>Allotropes of Carbon<br />Carbon nanotubes- also called buckytubes<br />are cylindrical carbon molecules with novel properties<br /> (e.g., nano-electronics, optics, materials applications, etc.)<br /> a member of the fullerene structural family, which also includes buckyballs.<br />
  18. 18. Allotropes of Carbon<br />Glassy carbon or vitreous carbon is a class of non-graphitizing carbon<br /> widely used as an electrode material in electrochemistry, as well as for high temperature crucibles and as a component of some prosthetic devices<br />
  19. 19. Allotropes of Carbon<br />Carbon nanofoam -consists of a low-density cluster-assembly of carbon atoms strung together in a loose three-dimensional web<br />
  20. 20. Allotropes of Carbon<br />Carbon nanobuds newly discovered allotrope of carbon in which fullerene like "buds" are covalently attached to the outer sidewalls of the carbon nanotubes. <br />has useful properties of both fullerenes and carbon nanotubes<br />
  21. 21. Allotropes of Carbon<br />Lonsdaleite -hexagonal allotrope of the carbon allotrope diamond<br />believed to form from graphite present in meteorites upon their impact to Earth.<br />diamond but retains graphite's hexagonal crystal lattice<br />
