These tetrahedrons form a 3D network of six-membered carbon rings, in the chair conformation, allowing for zero bond angle strain. This stable network of covalent bonds and hexagonal rings is the reason that diamond is so incredibly strong. Mixed states are also possible and form the basis of amorphous carbon, diamond-like carbon, and nanocrystalline diamond. Diamond was synthesized from graphite by high-pressure/ high-temperature methods in the1950s, and low-pressure chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of diamond polycrystalline films had been developed at the beginning of the 1960s.

Electron-correlation-driven localization of the t1u electrons exceeds the critical value, leading to the Mott insulator. The application of high pressure decreases the interfullerene spacing; therefore, cesium-doped C60 solids become metallic and superconducting. A fully developed theory of C60 solid superconductivity is still lacking, but it has been widely accepted that strong electronic correlations and the Jahn–Teller electron–phonon coupling [68] produce local electron pairings that show a high transition temperature close to the insulator–metal transition [69].
