The low-spin carbenes and carbynes detected in the IR-matrix spectra for the reactions of zirconium, iron, and ruthenium with fluoromethanes were rationalized by means of two sequential radical reactions [26-28].

Carbyne polysulfide material was synthesized by coheating carbyne and sulfur.
75 wt.% carbyne polysulfide active material, 15 wt.% super-P carbon powder, and 10 wt.% poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) dissolved in Nmethyl-2-pyrrolidinone (NMP) were mixed and coated onto a copper foil with a typical thickness of 50 [micro]m.
The element analysis of products (S1, S2, S3, S4, and S5) prepared by coheating carbyne and sulfur at different temperatures is shown in Table 1.
The study also found that Carbyne's strength is even double the strength of grapheme, which is the flat sheet of carbon atoms that is often held up as a "supermaterial."
Carbyne is a chain of carbon atoms held together by double or alternating single and triple chemical bonds.
Scientists have claimed that carbyne has twice the tensile stiffness of graphene and carbon nanotubes and nearly three times that of diamond.
