Abstract:

The new road of rolling up conformation of a graphite fragment into a fullerene is considered in context of the theory of the growth of carbon nanoparticles. The small curved flake-like fragments of the graphite monolayer are investigated as an intermediate step along the conformation path. The optimal shape of the clusters with the small curvature is found within the phenomenological model.
