Homework Help: Material science: Different properties of allotropic phosphorus

  1. Oct 11, 2011 #1
    I´m doing a little research on allotropic materials and decided to go with phosphorus...

    I chose white beta phosphorus, black phosphorus and red phosphorus.

    first question: since red phosphorus is not a crystalline solid but an amorphous solid, would you include it as an allotrope?

    second question: where can I find about the electrical properties of the different allotropes I´ve chosen? I could only find their magnetic susceptibility and the band gap for black phosphorus but couldn´t find anything else on the other two.

    I´d appreciate links or websites that could help me with this, thanks!
