Wonder material finally created in bulk
Carbyne, hailed as a wonder material due to its physical properties, has been created in large amounts by researchers at Vienna University. The material was first theorised in 1885 by Adolf von Baeyer, who predicted it would remain elusive as its high ...

Although carbyne's existence – an infinitely long carbon chain – had been proposed in 1885 by Adolf von Baeyer (1835-1917), a German chemist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1905, scientists have not yet succeeded in synthesizing this material.
World's strongest materia carbyne created in large amounts for the first time
Carbyne is linear acetylenic carbon, or an infinitely long carbon chain. Its existence was first proposed in 1885 by Adolf von Baeyer, who warned it would remain elusive due to extreme instability. Carbyne is a one-dimensional form of carbon and is ...
