a polyhedral carbon structure composed of around 60-80 carbon atoms in pentagon and hexagon configuration. they are named after buckminster fuller because of structural resemblance to geodesic domes. fullerenes can be made in high temperature such as arc discharge in an inert atmosphere.

Use: Fullerene is, like graphite and diamond, a special modification of carbon in the form of spherical or ellipsoid shapes. Discovered by Sumio Iijima in 1980, the first described synthesis dates back to 1985 by Richard Smalley, Robert Curl, James Heath, Sean O'Brien, and Harold Kroto at Rice University. By reacting graphite under a helium gas atmosphere in an electric arc, one gets a mixture of different fullerenes (C60, C70, C72) and fullerene soot containing up to 15% of Fullerene [C60].

•for soccer-ball-shaped c60 only one isolated pentagon rule (ipr) is possible; it is the smallest stable fullerene. the rugby-ball-like c70 also has only one ipr and is the next stable homologue, followed by the higher fullerenes c76, c78, c80, c82, c84, c90 ,and c96 •many of the higher fullerenes are chiral the number of possible chiral isomers increases with increasing cage size.
