Chemistry Now: Diamonds, Pencils and Buckyballs: A Look at Buckminsterfullerene

Diamonds, Pencils and Buckyballs: A Look at Buckminsterfullerene--This video focuses on the structure and properties of buckminsterfullerene molecules--carbon allotropes along with diamonds and graphite--that are usually referred to as buckyballs. They have a hollow spherical shape, like the geodesic spheres designed by American inventor and architect R. Buckminster Fuller.
