Polyyne : background info on triple bonded carbon
Polyyne-containing carbon has attracted attention as a new type of carbon material for its unique triple-bond linear structure. It is recognized not only as a new carbon but also as a precursor for the preparation of new types of carbon materials. The polyyne-containing carbon was prepared by electrochemical reduction of a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film with a reactive anode 1).
