Where do Carbon 60 Fullerenes come from?
Carbon 60 is very unique – in fact, no useful quantities exist in nature. It was discovered in 1985 by Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Richard Smalley at Rice University.
Before that, carbon only had two allotropic forms in nature: diamond and graphite. However, since the 1985 discovery of C60, carbon has been found in many additional forms, such as:
- single atomic layer (graphite)
How did the Carbon 60 Fullerene get its name?
Carbon 60 Fullerenes are named after Richard Buckminster Fuller, an architect who created the geodesic dome.
The geodesic dome, which you can see to the right, is a construct that bears remarkable resemblance to the Carbon Fullerenes sphere of C60 in its natural state.
