Cubane. Molecular model of the synthetic hydrocarbon cubane (C8.H8). This is a prismane, a hydrocarbon that forms a prism-like polyhedra, in this case a cube, one of the Platonic solids. Such molecules are engineered for their potential uses in medicine and nanotechnology. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (grey) and hydrogen (white). Illustration.
