Allotropes of Carbon

Allotropes of Carbon

This resource allows the students to be introduced to the concepts of allotropes. It guides them through researching 4 different allotropes (diamond, nano-tubes, fullerene and graphite) to compare structure and properties. Each is followed by a guided explanation of each allotrope. For alternative method their is a guided worksheet provided that works excellently with lower ability students. The next material introduced is silicon dioxide and this is explained and compared to diamond to enable the students to develop their ability to compare and explain. Finishes with a past paper question and model answer. QR codes are provided leading to BBC bitesize.
