Caption: Computer artwork of a boron buckyball, first discovered in 2014 by Lai-Sheng Wang at Brown University in Rhode Island, USA. It consists of a cluster of 40 boron atoms forming a molecular cage. Unlike carbon buckyballs, in which the faces are made of hexagons and pentagons, the boron buckyball is made of triangles, hexagons and heptagons. As a result, it is less spherical but still an enclosed structure. His novel form of boron may lead to new nanomaterial in the future.
