Learn More about Fullerene Molecule and Application

Fullerene C60 is an allotrope consisting of 60 atoms of carbon joined by covalent bonds. They form precisely 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons recalling an image of a soccer ball. No surprise it's considered the most beautiful known molecule. 

The appealing appearance is important as is their extraordinary properties and potential use. Since their discovery in 1985, they have found their place in many different disciplines. Fullerenes can be used for drug and gene delivery, as an antiviral agent, photosensitizers, as well as in the cosmetic industry. Truly exceptional is their role as free-radical scavengers. Their antioxidative properties are incomparable with any other material. The anti-ageing potential even opened up the discussion of everlasting cell youth.


The Buckminsterfullerene with Formula C60 Appreciated in Materials Engineering

Not only biomedical research brings promising results when it comes to applications of fullerenes. 

Their properties can improve various materials in unexpected ways. One of the most interesting examples is their use in manufacturing lightweight but extremely resistant sports equipment. You have surely heard about the carbon bicycle frames, tennis racquets, or fish rods. They play a significant role especially in electronics, too.

Other C60 Molecule Applications

  • Hardening agents - fullerenes-based metals could be strong despite their lightweight
  • Innovative coating - fullerenes enhance the quality of the commonly used coating agents
  • Thermal pastes component - adding of fullerenes increases the electronics protection
  • Electrocatalysts - it is possible to use them in fuel cells. They could reduce air pollution by substituting fossil fuels.
  • Hydrogen gas storage - fullerenes are capable of hydrogenation and dehydrogenation very easily because of their structure



Why Are Buckminsterfullerene Molecules So Revolutionary

Their discovery was groundbreaking. It is still rightly considered one of the most important scientific achievements of the 20th century. Despite the fact their existence was estimated before, the concrete proof came with their accidental synthesis in 1985. Eleven years later, scientists Kroto, Smalley, and Curl shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery. 

Before 1985, the known allotropes of carbon were only diamond, graphite, and amorphous carbon (soot, charcoal). Confirmation of fullerenes' existence expanded their number and changed all the chemistry textbooks. Right after they have manifested incomparable properties and have brought a new stimulus for various intense research.
