 -Buckyballs are a form of carbon molecule that has a ball shape. While naturally occurring have been discovered only relatively recently. Scientists have learned to produce, and how to manipulate them to produce many interesting and important. Buckyballs are an important part of nanotechnology, the study and application of machines in the smallest levels. This technology, still in its infancy, promises to be an important source of innovation in the coming years. www.stylesupplier.com

 -What is a Buckyball?
buckyball is a molecule of carbon, more properly called buckminsterfullerine. A molecule of this type contains at least 60 carbon atoms arranged in a structure composed of pentagons and hexagons, like a soccer ball. Buckyballs may have more atoms, but always with a ball made of geometric shapes. To specify the size of a particular molecule, the number of carbon atoms is then written, along with the symbol for carbon, for example, Buckminsterfullerine C540, which denotes a hollow ball with 540 carbon atoms. www.stylesupplier.com

 -Why so called Buckyballs?
Buckyballs are named after the great architect, inventor, designer and author, R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983), who liked to be called Bucky. Among other things, Fuller was known for his design of the geodesic dome, which is a continent made up of small geometric shapes. www.stylesupplier.com

 -Early Discovery
Carbon nanotubes,
buckyballs like molecules were first discovered in the Soviet Union in the 1950's. The Cold War prevented this information is widely disseminated, and not much came from his initial discovery. In 1970, a Japanese scientist named Eiji Osawa mathematically predicted the existence of buckyballs. www.stylesupplier.com

 -Modern Production
Buckyballs were produced deliberately for the first time in 1985 at Rice University by Richard Smalley, Harry Kroto and Curl Bob. Buckyballs produced using a laser to vaporize carbon, which earned them the 1996 Nobel Prize in chemistry. In order to produce enough for commercial use, other methods had to be devised, some of which are trade secrets. A known method, which produces 95 percent pure buckyballs, involves burning a mixture of oxygen and hydrocarbons at low pressure. www.stylesupplier.com

Buckyballs are extremely hard, having a strength comparable to that of diamond. This allows them to be added to synthetic polymers to increase durability. They also have many current and potential medical applications; can act in the human body as antioxidants, and are being developed as specialized systems for drug delivery, capable of containing a small amount of a drug inside and drop in a specific place or time. www.stylesupplier.com
