Abstract

Hyperdiamonds are covalently bonded fullerenes in crystalline forms, more or less related to diamond, and having a significant amount of sp3 carbon atoms. Design of several hypothetical crystal networks was performed by using our original software programs CVNET and NANO-STUDIO. The topology of the networks is described in terms of the net parameters and several counting polynomials, calculated by NANO-STUDIO, OMEGA and PI software programs.
