sp hybridization in free carbon nanoparticles—presence and stability observed by near edge X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy

Author affiliations

Abstract

The presence and stability of sp hybridized atoms in free carbon nanoparticles was investigated by NEXAFS spectroscopy. The experiments show that a predominant fraction of carbon atoms is found in linear sp-chains and that conversion into sp2 structures proceeds already at low temperature and in the gas phase.
