Structure of carbinoid nanotubes and carbinofullerenes

Molecular mechanics methods have been used to calculate the geometrically optimized structure of carbinoid layers, carbinoid nanotubes, and carbinofullerenes consisting of carbine chains linked by atoms in sp 2 and/or sp 3 hybridization states. Energy characteristics of carbinoid nanostructures have been calculated by semi-empirical quantum-mechanical methods. A structural classification of framework carbinoid nanostructures has been proposed. The dependence of specific binding energies of carbinoid nanostructures on the ratio sp 2/sp and their geometrical sizes has been determined.
