Title: "The study of the electronic properties of graphene onions with a reactive atom inside"
Different types of graphene onions will be studied by methods of quantum theory and statistical physics. In particular, the C20 @ C80, C60 @ C240 and C240 @ C540 onions will be selected as subjects of the basic study because they are among the most stable ions. But even these fullerenes have different diameters, charges and also electron properties, so we can draw more conclusions for them with examples of similar inner and outer shells. Individual reactive atoms such as Ni, Fe and Co are incorporated inside each of these fullerenes. The aim of this study is to find new stable onion structures with suitable electronic properties required by the nano-industry. Basic theories and approaches to solving a given topic without a reactive atom inside are published in the works [1-3].
