Caption: Fullerene molecule. Computer artwork of the spherical fullerene molecule C180. Fullerenes are structurally distinct forms (allotropes) of carbon. The molecular model here shows the spherical arrangement of the 180 carbon atoms in rings of hexagons and a few pentagons. The spherical fullerenes are sometimes referred to as buckyballs, after the first such molecule to be discovered (C60, buckminsterfullerene). As of 2006, research is being conducted into the use of fullerenes for medical purposes. Fullerenes are also being investigated for their physical and chemical properties.
