Fragments of Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes: Designed Synthesis, Unusual Reactions, and Coordination Chemistry (0470569085) cover image
This book is the first of its kind to reflect upon the intense and rapidly growing interest in open geodesic polyaromatic molecules, specifically focusing on their synthesis and reactivity in metal binding reactions.   The book broadly covers all aspects related to the fullerene fragment chemistry: current synthetic techniques, description of the available members of this new family (which has grown to more than two dozens members, with none being available commercially), molecular geometry and trends in the solid state packing, as well as extensions into physical properties and new buckybowl-based molecules and materials.  It covers fundamental research related to a new class of hydrocarbons, namely open geodesic polyarenes that map onto the surfaces of fullerenes (and referred to as fullerene fragments or buckybowls.

She has published over 120 research papers in scientific journals. In 2006, she received the NSF Career Award, a five-year grant to explore the reactivity and coordination limits of open geodesic polyaromatic hydrocarbons (buckybowls).

Lawrence T. Scott received his PhD from Harvard University in 1970 and is a Professor at Boston College, where he occupies the Louise and Jim Vanderslice and Family Chair in Chemistry. He has published more than 200 research papers in scientific journals and currently serves on the editorial advisory boards for Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds and The Journal of Organic Chemistry.  In 2011, he received the George A. Olah Award in Hydrocarbon Chemistry from the American Chemical Society.
