The X-files

Harry Kroto in his office

Sir Harry Kroto had an amazing office full of interesting box files on different topics including: art, design, philosophy, mathematics, architecture, astronomy, physics, nano technology and of course carbon, C60, fullerenes, nanotubes and chemistry. One intriguing file was marked "X-files" which contained articles, information and data that even Harry did not yet fully understand and so he thought worthy of more study. Here I am carrying on the tradition .... below are some of my own topics of interest - my own X-files - that I am currently thinking about and exploring ... (Note: some of these pages are 'work in progress' - if you find mistakes, or think of better ways of explaining what is here please let me know).
