Diamondoids

Diamondoids are tiny diamond fragments which come in a wide variety of shapes and are very rigid and stable. These properties, plus their minute size, make diamondoids potentially useful building blocks for molecular-size machines, or nanotechnology.

 

We are interested in exploiting the evolution of the electronic properties of different diamondoids and their potential for hydrogen absorption and desorption, important for the hydrogen storage economy.
