    CARBON Carbon, an element discovered before history itself, is one of the most abundant elements in the universe. It can be found in the sun, the stars, comets, and the atmospheres of most planets. There are close to ten million known carbon compounds, many thousands of which are vital to the basis of life itself (WWW 1). Carbon occurs in many forms in nature. One of its purest forms is diamond. Diamond is the hardest substance known on earth. Although diamonds found in nature are colorless and

    Carbon is ubiquitous: we wear it, write with it, and 18.5% of our body is composed of it. By mass, carbon is the fourth most abundant element in the universe. Carbon is the element marked with the symbol C and the atomic number six. Carbon is nonmetallic; although, it is sometimes considered a metalloid. Carbon is composed of six electrons and four valence electrons. I chose carbon because of its many useful allotropes of which the three most well known are diamond, graphite, and graphene. Depending

    Topic: Methods of Carbon sequestration Carbon sequestration: Carbon sequestration is a way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It includes two other major approaches, improved energy efficiency and increased use of non-carbon energy sources for greenhouse gas reduction. Carbon sequestration means capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere or capturing anthropogenic CO2 from large-scale stationary sources like power plants before it is released to the atmosphere. Once captured, the CO2 gas

    The black mineral in the middle of a pencil is called graphite, graphite is made is made of multiple layers of carbon atoms. The picture beside shows the image of the structure of a single layer of carbon atoms. The atoms are arranged in hexagonal shapes. These layers can be rolled to create the structure of a carbon nanotube. The direction of which the layer is rolled determines their electronic properties. For example: as shown in the picture beside, when the layers are rolled a particular way

    Commission announced that carbon emissions had become an important factor in the decision making criteria for investors, regulators, government, and other stakeholders. Currently, companies are not required to release data that is not material to stakeholders, and as a result many companies choose not to disclose carbon emissions. This is because many issuers have determined that “climate change will not have a material impact on their financial results”1. The SEC’s guidance on carbon disclosure will

    INTRODUCTION A carbon nanotube (CNT) is a tube shaped material having diameter in the nanometre range. As a group, carbon nanotubes typically have diameters ranging from less than 1 nm to 50 nm. Their lengths are typically of several microns. Recent advancements have made the nanotubes much longer (up to few centimetres). Carbon nanotubes are allotropes of carbon having a cylindrical nanostructure. They are said to be the member of ‘fullerene structural family’. Nanotubes having an aspect ratio
