  • Description Buckminsterfullerene (C60) belongs to the category of carbon allotropes and is specifically classified as a fullerene. The chemical structure of it consists of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a hollow sphere, forming a truncated icosahedron.
  • Uses Buckminsterfullerene has diverse applications. It can be utilized in chiral induction processes, astrophysical studies, and materials science. In addition, it has potential applications in areas such as nanotechnology, drug delivery systems, and photovoltaic devices. Buckminsterfullerene has various mechanisms of action depending on its application. For example, in a metal-organic framework (MOF), it can exhibit chiral induction. In astrophysical contexts, it plays a role in photoionization dynamics relevant to diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) and photoelectric heating in the interstellar medium.
  • History and Development Buckminsterfullerene (C60) was first discovered in 1985 by Richard Smalley, Robert Curl, James Heath, Sean O'Brien, and Harold Kroto, who were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996 for their discovery. Buckminsterfullerene is named after Richard Buckminster Fuller, an American architect and inventor known for popularizing geodesic dome structures. The molecule's spherical shape resembles the geodesic domes designed by Fuller.
  • Production Methods Buckminsterfullerene can be produced through various methods, including laser ablation, arc discharge, and chemical vapor deposition.
