Caption: Buckminsterfullerene molecular model. This is a structurally distinct form (allotrope) of carbon that has 60 carbon atoms (black) arranged in a spherical structure consisting of interlinking hexagonal and pentagonal rings, like a football. These spherical fullerenes are sometimes referred to as buckyballs. This ball and spoke model is to the scale of 1 centimetre = 0.1 nanometres.
