Researchers have calculated the properties of carbyne, a form of carbon that is stronger, stiffer and more exotic than anything else chemists have seen before. The material is twice as hard as carbon sheet, needs more energy to break than a diamond and is also quite flexible. It is composed of a chain of carbon atoms linked by alternate triple and single bonds or consecutive double bonds.Read more: http://bit.ly/1a0Q0OG via MIT Technology Review
