Ivanovskii, A. L. (2013). "Search for superhard carbon: between graphite and diamond." Journal of Superhard Materials 35(1): 1-14.

A brief review has been presented of the recent studies aimed at searching for new 3D (sp(3)) carbon allotropes of increased hardness and carried out using computational approaches. The principles of the construction of structural models, methods of the analysis of stability and assessments of microhardness of novel carbon materials have been considered.
