Caption

Buckyball. Computer artwork of a buckyball (Buckminsterfullerene, C60) molecule. The red bulges represent carbon (C) atoms which are arranged in pentagons and hexagons to form a soccer ball-shaped sphere. Around the C60 molecule is a net-like structure which is the electrostatic potential map. Buckminsterfullerene was discovered in 1985. It was the first of a range of fullerenes to be found. Fullerenes are a structural form (allotrope) of the element carbon. Fullerenes have novel physical and chemical properties which can be exploited to produce new catalysts, lubricants and superconductors.
