KTEP - El Paso, Texas


  Keith & Russ talk with Dennis Lichtenberger of the University of Arizona's Department of Chemistry.  Dennis talks about why the movement of electrons affect the behavior of molecules.  He also talks about the ups & downs of the so-called "hydrogen economy," and why it's not just limited to fueling automobiles.  Dennis first appeared on Science Studio 22 years ago in which he talked about C60 - Buckminsterfullerene, or "Bucky Balls" - a form of carbon whose electrons behave as if they belonged to a smaller molecule.  http://www.chem.arizona.edu/faculty_profile/lich/lichx.html
