+ - Carbyne Predicted To Be Strongest Known Material->

Submitted by MTorrice
MTorrice writes: According to theoretical calculations, one-dimensional strings of carbon atoms called carbyne should be stronger than any known material—if experimentalists can figure out how to make it in bulk. Its tensile stiffness, for example, should be twice that of graphene and carbon nanotubes. The researchers predict that the carbon allotrope also could have novel electrical and magnetic properties that would be useful in computing systems.
