The allotropes of carbon are the different structural configurations that carbon can form in. Some
examples are graphite, diamond, fullerenes and carbon nanotubes. These all have different
applications and as nanotechnology improves as does the uses and efficiency.

Diamond is one of the most well known…

as no movement of electrons is available on the other hand the formation of nanotubes that are
capable of conducting electricity along theirs lengths is an exception. To melt fullerenes the Van der
Waal forces must be broken which is relatively easy as they are only weak forces so it…
