The sulfur atoms in carbon dioxide are arranged in a sulfur valance configuration, researchers at the University of California, Davis have found.
They also found carbon-13s in carbon-12s, which means they have a different electrical charge and make up a different type of chemical.
The new discovery comes from a research paper published in the journal Nature Communications.
“We found that sulfur atoms were not the same type of metal and that they had different chemical properties,” said lead author Michael Kuk, an assistant professor in the UC Davis School of Chemistry.
“That is surprising because they are known to be involved in various chemical reactions.
We have to go back to the chemical history to figure out why they are different.”
The researchers first discovered carbon-14 atoms in the carbon dioxide, or CO2, in 2011.
They found that these atoms are very similar to the ones in carbon atoms, but the arrangement of the carbon atoms is different.
“There are two types of carbon-8, carbon-9 and carbon-10, but we did not know that there was an intermediate type, called carbon-11,” Kuk said.
The researchers were surprised when they looked up the structure of the two types.
The intermediate carbon-4, carbon of the intermediate carbon type, they found was very different from the carbon-3.
This was surprising because, like the intermediate type carbon-2, the intermediate is also in the intermediate-carbon group, which has three carbon atoms.
The carbon-6, carbon atoms in intermediate-type carbon-1 are a bit more complicated, but they have two carbon atoms and a carbon atom, and the carbon atom is in the middle.
“The second carbon atom on the top of the structure is very unusual.
That is the carbon ion,” Kink said.
“It is the only one in the whole structure that is a carbon-5 and it is also present on the outside of the double bond.”
The carbon ions are not exactly the same.
They are very different, and they can have different electrical charges, but there is one common bond between the carbon ions and the double bonds that they are arranged together, he said.
“When you combine this with the carbon’s electrical charge, it turns out that this carbon-7 is not the intermediate of carbon atoms,” Kank said.
This is the first time that researchers have discovered a structure in the chemical composition of carbon dioxide that has a unique electrical charge.
It’s not like we have been looking at a carbon molecule, but it is a chemical structure that has changed.
“This is exciting because we are discovering a structure that really has no place in carbon,” Kuhn said.
Kuk is now working on further experiments to see if carbon-19 is different from carbon-15.
He is looking for other structures in the chemistry of CO2 and carbon in the environment, and is working on developing more complex models of carbon structures.
