|Abstract:||Carbon is one of the most interesting elements in the periodic table and it plays a unique role in nature. Carbon has the ability to form very long chains of interconnecting C-C bonds which is known as catenation. Due to catenation, carbon forms the highest number of compounds compared to any other element. The capability of carbon atoms to form complicated networks  is fundamental to organic chemistry and forms the basis for the existence of life. Elemental carbon forms many allotropes [Figure 1] such as diamond, graphite, fullerenes [2-4] and nanotubes . Figure 1.|
